Financial contributions for children living in Roma communities could increase by 100 percent as part of a government effort to increase the number of Roma children attending school and achieving good results, the SITA newswire reported.

Its 10-year Plan for Integration of the Roma Population for the years 2005-2015 includes several other goals that ministries, the government plenipotentiary for Roma communities, and non-governmental organisations hope to fulfil. In the next four years they want to increase the attendance of Roma children in nursery schools to at least 50 percent, and to increase the number of Roma children who finish primary and secondary school.

The government also plans to start teaching the Roma language at schools and to continue educating teachers and other employees to work with Roma.
