National REYN launched in Bosnia Herzegovina and Bulgaria
We are happy to announce that the Romani Early Years Network (REYN) has just expanded to two new countries: Bosnia and Herzegovina and Bulgaria!
In Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), the news has been shared by the three founding organizations of REYN BiH: Kali Sara – Roma Information Center Association, Center for Educational Initiatives Step by Step and Public Interest Advocacy Center (CPI).
They all presented REYN BiH’s mission and priorities on the occasion of the conference on “Educational Policies for Roma in BiH in the Context of EU Integration” in Sarajevo last December.
In Bulgaria, REYN will be coordinated by Trust for Social Achievement (TSA). Last January 24th, they held a consultation with potential members and stakeholders of REYN in Bulgaria. At the event, TSA shared strategic objectives and planned activities of REYN in the country.
The consultation was attended by over 40 representatives of different civil society organizations and representatives of public institutions including: ministries, governmental agencies, foreign embassies kindergartens and hospitals. Stanislav Daniel, Coordinator of REYN International, inspired participants by sharing good practices and lessons learned in other countries.
Attendees provided suggestions to TSA on how to increase impact. REYN was then launched in Bulgaria on February 1, 2018.
