AP ASKED TO BOOST THE INFORMATION CAPACITY OF EAST EUROPEAN ROMA

AP has received a grant from the Open Society Institute-Hungary to
provide support for 26 Roma organizations in nine East European
countries.

Phase One of the project will start early in 2002. The goal of the
project is to help Roma NGOs build on help they have received from OSI
and make better use of information and communications technology as
they struggle to maintain their identity and participate in the
emerging democracies of East Europe.

Under the agreement with OSI, AP's technical director will start by
assessing the information needs of a sample number of the Roma groups,
working closely with a local researcher. Most of the technical support
and training will be provided by a team of Roma eRiders (non profit
technology assistance providers) from the region.

This project will build on two other agreements between AP and OSI.
Under these, AP is supporting the information work of the Kosovo
Women's Network and providing technical support for the Roma Women's
Association of Romania. Progress on both of these projects will be
covered regularly in future issues of AdvocacyNet.
