Therefore, the members of the Community Action Group, as one of the priorities in their work, saw this problem as one of the burning ones that needs to be solved urgently, especially having in mind the overall situation with the new epidemic of COVID-19 virus.

496.45 EUR without VAT was allocated for this activity, and funds were provided through the programme ROMACTED - Promoting good governance and Roma empowerment at the local level. 

The ROMACTED programme is funded by the European Commission and the Council of Europe, and it is implemented in the Western Balkans countries (Montenegro, Serbia, BiH, Kosovo, Albania, and North Macedonia) and Turkey in more than 60 municipalities aiming to improve the position of Roma and Egyptians at the local level. In Montenegro, this Programme is implemented in eight municipalities: Berane, Bijelo Polje, Niksic, Podgorica, Herceg Novi, Tivat, Bar and Ulcinj. The supporting organization of the Programme for Montenegro is the NGO Young Roma.
