R.I.C.E Project

Roma Inclusion through Culture and Education

Harehills is delighted to be involved with the RICE project. The project involves linking schools and Roma communities in Leeds with schools and Roma communities in Brno, Czech Republic.

Both partner cities have a sizeable Roma population (as well as Gypsies and Travellers in Leeds). It is estimated that there are in excess of 5,000 Gypsies, Roma and Travellers in Leeds and over 15,000 Roma in Brno. These communities experience social exclusion and multiple disadvantages, including in the areas of education, employment, health and housing.

Roma Pupil Speech

This truly inspirational speech was written by a Roma pupil at a school in Leicestershire and it gives a very positive view of our education system here in the UK.

I am a person – Jsem lidská bytost.
