TEEEM Partnering with the Roma Community in Slovakia

Throughout Eastern Europe, there are many impoverished Roma, or sometimes called, gypsy settlements. Despite being European citizens, many Romani are victims of deplorable discrimination, which leads to a vicious circle of entrapping poverty, further discrimination, substance abuse, and crime. To help break this malignant circle, TEEEM is providing microloans to Roma settlements in eastern Slovakia so that Roma people can live in homes with toilets, plumbing and a shower.
