kuruluşun tanımı

The Federation was established in 2008 as a fusion of 5 Roma Associations from the Mediterranean (Mersin) region to bring a momentum to development of the Roma at the fields of education, employment, housing and culture.
After its founding, with the establishment of its departments, the federation first started a survey in the area of Roma to detect the problem areas to seek for due solutions.
After the survey AKROMFED determined its main activity fields up to 2016 as follows:

• Activities supporting the EDUCATION of Roma
. Activities for raising the awareness on DISCRIMINATION and RACISM
• Activities for providing EMPLOYMENT possibilities to Roma people.
• Activities for STRENGTHENING THE ROMA IDENTITY and maintaining the respect towards the Roma culture by both new generations of Roma and non-Roma citizens.
• Launching ADVOCACY activities through a network of Roma civil society organizations with an aim of development of State Policy for Roma in Turkey.

Since then AKROMFED gained a vast experience in implementing various projects in all these fields. It also became one of the founders of Turkey’s wide Roma platform “Turkish Roma Rights Forum - ROMFO” and with this forum established a network in four regions of Turkey.

Founders and members of AKROMFED are activists with broad knowledge of the situation of Roma and Roma NGOS and developed capacities and skills in addressing the specific needs for their development into an influential movement. They come from different walks of life and various educational backgrounds and serve as key resource of AKROMFED for implementing activities on the local community level as well as on regional and national level.
