Meeting the Roma community in Straldzha - a film screening and discussion
An IOM Bulgaria team together with representatives of consortium NNHM- BFPA-EMHPF organised an info session and film screening for the Roma community in the town of Straldzha.
The Roma community in Straldzha faces many challenges, including a lack of job opportunities and poverty. Many are forced to seek work outside of the country in order to make a living and support their families. This is often a difficult and dangerous process.
The event presenters took a unique approach to discussing the topics of migration, exploitation, and human trafficking. Rather than a traditional lecture, they chose to screen the film "Baraka" for the community and invited discussion afterwards.
The audience responded well to this approach, and they engaged in a lively and thought-provoking discussion about the themes of the film and how they related to their own lives and experiences. The discussion was open and free-flowing, and it allowed for a deeper exploration of these important issues.
This event was funded by the Norwegian Financial Mechanism - 2014-2021.
