Indicator:
Workalo project provides various arguments supporting the need to incorporate the voice of Roma into scientific research and also into policy decision making processes. Drawing from this finding, the Integrated Plan for the Roma in Catalonia created an Advisory Board where Roma representatives are participating in the design of the Plan, suggesting what king of measures and actions are necessary to implement. One of the activities developed by the Catalan Plan are family education programs for Roma families who do not hold any educational degree in order to prepare them to obtain one. Around 56 Roma people will be taking the Elementary or the Secondary School Certificate exam for the first time.
