The CIDT ‘Amalipe’ received the Intercultural Achievement Recognition Award of the Austrian Federal Ministry for Europe, Integration and Foreign Affairs for the project “Every Student Can Be a Winner”.

 “Every Student Can Be a Winner” is a two-year project supported by the TSA that aims at preventing dropout of Roma children in compulsory schooling age. Project activities are also intended to solve the problem of the large number of absences, low grades in school, the relatively small percentage of Roma students continuing their education in secondary schools (high schools) and high school graduates, lack of participation of Roma parents in school life and school structures management. The project steps on the rich experience of Amalipe for the introduction of  Roma folklore and culture subject in the school curriculum and the program for reducing dropout of Roma children from school.
