Roma children and families have benefited from enhanced access to quality social services in communities where projects were implemented. Roma children were offered an improved curriculum (including bilingual curricula in pre-school education) to promote diversity and non-discrimination. Unqualified Roma teachers working in local schools were trained as primary education teachers. Roma children benefited from new Romani language manuals and educational materials. UNICEF contributed to an enhanced capacity of Roma NGOs in the field of education, child health and protection. UNICEF actively contributed to the development of the policy framework for the improvement of the situation of Roma children, and supported the strengthening of public county health and education networks (with local Roma communities effectively linked to these county networks).
