Terne Romani Bacht POLAND

Romani Little Happiness.

The leader of the group is Bożena Paczkowska.

It is a singing and dancing group formed of Polish and Romani children from nine Wrocław schools. The classes are held under the auspices of Education Department and Foundation of Social Integration “Prom”. The symbolic name of the foundation (‘prom’ is a Polish word for ‘ferry’) emphasizes its mission: “to connect the distant; to bring closer the unknown; to unify the rejected.” Bringing Romani and Polish children together through art leads to reduction in social inequalities, improvement of education level, promotion of Romani culture, and above all to internal integration of local communities. The group is led by Romani instructors, and its founders are teachers supporting education of Romani students in Wrocław.
