Two organizations in Timisoara, the Intercultural Institute and the Educational Assistance and Resources Centre â€śSperantaâ€ť collaborate with the civic Association â€śRadovi U Tokuâ€ť in Novi Sad as partners within a European project focused on the training and certification of mediators working in Roma communities.
The VET4ROMA project, coordinated by the â€śPere Closaâ€ť Foundation in Barcelona in partnership with other organizations from Spain, Italy and Belgium, is co-financed by the European Commission and will enable the development of training modules which also include an online training component, in line with the European standards in the field, which will be used to train groups of mediators who work in Roma communities in the partner countries. The organizations involved in the project will meet in Novi Sad in mid-October 2014 to agree upon the content of the training modules and the endeavours that will be undertaken to get them officially recognized.
