De Toekomst Liberta
One of the largest Roma communities in the Netherlands, with around 400 people, is in Nieuwegein. The women are socially isolated, have no job, and rarely come in contact with people from other (no- Roma) backgrounds.
The Roma organization De Toekomst Liberta has started sport classes, walks and runs for Roma women and girls, with support of Women Win. Their two main goals are to increase the mental and physical health of the Roma women and girls and to get them out of their isolated position. Additionally, De Toekomst Liberta seeks to inform them about health-related issues by organizing workshops.
