Roma Plus

Boosting Literacy and Numeracy Skills for Roma people

Roma Plus project’s aim is to train and reduce the drop-out rates of Adult (low-literate) Roma, while enhancing the skills and competences of adult Trainers/Teachers in the use of modern adult training techniques, tailored to the Roma cultural background.

The primary objective is going to be achieved through the development of:

  1. Open educational resources (OER) for educators working with adult Roma with low literacy, to enhance their relevant competences
  2. Peer learning material that will target low skilled adult Roma, creating a learning experience that will increase their literacy level.

During its 24-month lifetime, Roma Plus will positively impact:

At least


Adult Roma having their literacy skills increased

At least


Roma learners benefiting from their participation in the Massive Open Online Courses (MooC) platform

At least


Roma Representatives and associations acting as “ambassadors” to spread the word and sensitise others

At least


Adult Trainers/Teachers having their capacity built

At least


participants with fewer opportunities that are going to be guided and supported by the adult teaching/training procedure of Roma Plus

At least


Grass-root NGOs and relevant stakeholders equipped with new skills, knowledge and resources able to better help Roma people
