- December 2014 - January 2015, Sveti Martin na Muri: All three training workshops for preschool teachers within the implementation of the project „Uniting differences – fostering the integration of Roma preschool children“ were held in Sveti Martin na Muri, Međimurje County.

The project is implemented by CDRSEE – Center for democracy and reconciliation in south-eastern Europe in partnership with Center for Peace, Legal Advice and Psychosocial Assistance Vukovar and in cooperation with the Association of preschool teachers Krijesnice from Čakovec.

These teacher training workshops were planned within the project as a result of October and November trainings, when, out of 30 preschool teachers, there have been selected the best ones to implement these three workshops in order to present the best known methodologies of integration of Roma children into the educational system. 

This seminar was a unique opportunity to learn new methodologies for working in multi-cultural classes and kindergartens. The aim of this education was to strengthen capacities of teachers and pre-school teachers for improving the inclusion of Roma children in pre-school education.

The success of Roma children in later education decisively depends on the empowerment they receive in pre-school education and in good cooperation of all stakeholders in community development process.

The project is funded by EU, through IPA program – Human Resources Development.
