Romano Centro

Vienna, Austria


As one of the first Rom associations in Austria, the Romano Centro Vienna was founded by Roma and non-Roma in 1991. The aim of the association is to improve the social and legal situation of the Roma living in Austria, the education and encouragement of children and adolescents throughout their development, as well as the further education of adults. Over the years, a few hundred children have been encouraged through educational support services or mediation at schools. In future, the programme is going to be extended, especially in the field of mediation for Roma at schools and through PR work with a view to fighting racism.
