Our goal is to increase the level of equal opportunity in Hajdú-Bihar County, by creating a Net, which can cover all of the County. To create this Equal-Net, we have to teach local volunteers, whose can make signs, if somebody’s equal opportunity became injured locally, and help locally or forward the case. So we can ensure legal (and other) services locally for disadvantaged people, especially for romas.
Our primary target group are the roma people. But any disadvantaged man or woman can be our client. And of course we try to change the outlook and preconceptions of the main society as well.
Our project activities are the legal and social adviceing, the representation, giving free services, ordering events, and publishing information brochures. Our methods are: - personal case-work, anonym case-work by phone, field-work, negotiations. And we try to change the outlook and preconceptions by correct informations.
We involve roma people to the project from all around the County (local mentors). And we cooperate with other services (e.g. EBH) as well. We will make new contracts with institutes, NGOs, and local goverments of roma minorities. So the results of the project hopefully can be last long.
