Our mission:
The objective of Ternikalo 21 is to increase the participation of the Roma youth in all the areas of society. Through empowerment, participation, mobilization and self-organization it is possible to built mutual trust and respect between Roma and non-Roma, increasing their interaction with each other. Through our projects and actions we stimulate the development and the self-esteem of the Roma youth, contributing to their greater empowerment. We create spaces where the youth can participate, discovering their skills and learning how to work with youth with different cultural backgrounds, transforming them into active citizens.


Who we are:
Ternikalo 21 is a Roma youth organization established in 2010 in Barcelona. Ternikalo 21 is created following the experience of the European Roma Youth Summit, organized by TernYpe in Cordoba in 2010. Applying TernYpe’s the methodology we want to import to the Spanish Roma community its good practices. Ternikalo 21 wants to create spaces of stimulus for the Roma youth, helping them to transform into active citizens strengthening their self-esteem and personal skills. The exchange of experiences between Roma from different European countries, enriches and strengthens the Spanish Roma youth movement, creating networks on local, national and European levels.
