Fundacion Secretariado Gitano

Autonómia Foundation was established in 1990 to promote civil society development. It supports civil initiatives in which people mobilize the available local resources to reach their goals. They partner with Roma and non-Roma civil organizations in their development and grant giving activities among marginalized people. The mission statement of the foundation is to support the creation of a just society whose members are free, actively and responsibly shape their fate and the fate of their communities.Besides direct development work they do training and research, and as they do not have their own resources now, they facilitate the efficiency of government and European programs targeting the improvement of labor market conditions of Roma and poor.
