If you know a person, organisation or activity that contributes to improving the situation of Roma in Slovakia, why not nominate them for the Roma Spirit award, which is beginning its 11th year?
Government Proxy for the Roma Communities Ábel Ravasz is grateful that positive stories from the Roma community reach the public domain thanks to Roma Spirit.
“Everyone can see that the bad news is not a true reflection of what is happening,” he said, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
More nominations coming
This is exemplified, according to Ravasz, by the increasing number of nominations and their diversity.
It is possible to send nominations in seven categories via an online form at the website, or via e-mail and post office until September 20, 2019.
Then, the number of nominations will be narrowed to 21 by an international jury.
Last year, there was a record of 313 nominations. The aim of the award is to draw attention to personalities, organisations, and activities that help to integrate the Roma in society and also to the symbiosis between the Roma and non-Roma.
