Support for the integration of refugee children and their families in the Czech Republic.

The project is funded by the UNICEF United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund.


The project aims to support the integration of Roma refugee children and their families by improving their access to health care, education, social and child protection services.


Who is the project for?

The target group of the project is refugee Roma children and their families on the territory of the Czech Republic.


What the project offers:

  • The project will create 5 educational classrooms where educational and leisure activities will take place with preschool and school-age children. They will be provided by coordinators for work with children and their assistants with knowledge of Ukrainian.  
  • One of the activities of the project is to design and implement an advocacy and communication strategy to support the rights and needs of Roma refugees, which should target both relevant institutions and entities and the majority society. 
  • The project is largely accompanied by extensive research and regular monitoring and mapping of the situation in the various regions where we operate, identifying the mobility of people across the Czech Republic and beyond. 
  • Our mobile team ensures the complexity of our work with preschool and school-age children.  The team consists of a researcher/coordinator, an education expert, a networking specialist, a child psychologist and a special educator. Their main goal is to effectively and comprehensively address the problems of Roma Ukrainian children in the localities where we operate, based on continuous mapping and monitoring of the current situation in the regions, provided by local social workers and team leaders.
  • Experts in the mobile team will travel to the localities and assess individual cases of children at risk and will propose a comprehensive solution to their situation, if necessary, and provide assistance and help from other external experts on site (paediatrician, psychiatrist, lawyer, etc.). The mobile team will be linked to the local community and stakeholders.
