Face of Roma in Bosnia and Herzegovina

In March 2014, World Vision, together with its local partners, conducted series of workshops and street campaigns where Roma people, both adults and children, were asked about their lives, their thoughts, their wishes and their dreams.

Answers given were honest and straightforward. These were thoughts of people whose voices are often unheard in Bosnian-Herzegovinian society, as Roma minority still remains the most disadvantaged ethnic minority in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Only one third of Roma children go to school. Many are without health insurance, even ID cards.

World Vision is working with programming, advocacy and local Roma leaders to fight discrimination at every level against the Roma.
