Dear Friends,
 
Rroma Community Union "Rroma Mission" is seeking sponsors who could
support education and charity projects for Rroma (Gypsy) community.
 
Our organization was founded in 1999. It unites public Rroma
organisations of Lithuania. We collect information and organise
meetings for leaders of Rroma organisations to provide them an
opportunity to exchange experiences and represent Rroma minority at
national level. Rroma Community Union "Rroma Mission" was registered 3
May 1999 in the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Lithuania
 
As local organisations need much support at present stage, we try to
realise projects that could help them to become more independent
solving local problems of Rroma people. Until now all activities of
the Rroma Community Union were funded by activists from Kaunas.
 
We would like to find supporters that could help us:
 
*  to organise training for activists of Rroma organisations on public
relations, management of NGO, management of charity, community work
with youth, Rroma women issues and to offer them English course;
*  to organise special vocational courses for adults having no basic
education;
*  to support programs for increase of children and youth access to
all levels of education;
*  to organise charity for local Rroma organisations (means for repair
of housing, clothing, footwear, training appliances for children,
furniture, medicines).
 
Please, contact us for further information.
 
Yours sincerely,
 
Aleksandras Kasparavicius
President
Rroma Community Union "Rroma Mission"
Address: Sv. Gertrudos 7-21, LT-3000 Kaunas, LITHUANIA
