Light in the Darkness

Experience in a Roma Community

Lecture and discussion on the occasion of Macedonia`s presidency of the Decade of Roma Inclusion


The German citizen Frank Abbas has been living and working for seven

years as a street worker in the Roma Community Vladislavovo in

Bulgaria's second largest city Varna.

His personal motivation is his Christian (lutheran) believe, but his aim

is to help the Roma living in Vladislavovo to get better access to

education, i.a. by registration, pre and after school training,

consultancy, psychological support and mediation.

During the event a film by the Bulgarian state TV about Mr. Abbas' work will be presented. After that Mr. Abbas will report about his activities in Varna.

Mr. Mustafov of the Roma Education Fund in Skopje will brief the

audiance about the work of the Fund in Macedonia. We hope that a lively

discussion will take place after the presentations, which should be

considered as a contribution to the outgoing presidency of Macedonia in

the Roma Decade 2005 - 2015.
