Romani Early Years Network – REYN

No more lost Romani and Traveller generations

The Open Society Foundation’s Roma ‘Kopaçi’ initiatives at the Early Childhood Program (ECP) and the International Step by Step Association (ISSA), in cooperation with ISSA’s members, launches a joint initiative aiming to empower Roma and non-Roma Early Childhood Development (ECD) professionals and para-professionals working with Romani communities, offering them opportunities for professional development, training, study visits and international networking across the early childhood development sector. As part of this initiative, the Romani Early Years Network – REYN will be launched during the ISSA/DECET Conference in Opatija, Croatia, 14th – 17th October 2012.

Interested professionals and para-professionals working in services aimed at young Romani children (birth to 8 years) and their families, are invited in joining the network and taking part in the activities. In addition to benefitting from the professional development opportunities offered, the members of the network will also be able to contribute with ideas on how the new network may best serve the needs and aspirations of professional and para-professional network members – Roma and non-Roma professionals and para-professionals alike through this blog and other platforms.
