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. We partner with Roma and non-Roma civil organizations in our development and grant giving activities among marginalized people. Besides direct development work we do training and research, and as we do not have our own resources now, we facilitate the efficiency of government and European programs targeting the improvement of labor market conditions of Roma and poor. It is a priority that the lessons learnt in our 25 years’ work should be used by the widest possible public.
