Access and the quality of services can be increased by ensuring more diversity in the workforce. The REYN National Network Hungary has been training Romani women to help them entering the profession.
“I am really grateful for this opportunity, I have always wanted to work with children but could never afford to study. I used to work in a kindergarten but couldn’t keep the job because I wasn’t qualified”, says Eva. She prefers not to disclose her real name for privacy reasons.
With other Roma women, Eva followed a training provided and financed by the REYN National Network Hungary. She is now a qualified kindergarten technical assistant.
REYN Hungary has been recently supporting the professional development of Romani women in early childhood education and care.
REYN Hungary is a vibrant national network that offers its members opportunities for professional development across the early childhood development sector and advocates for more Roma early childhood professionals in the country. They also promote access to high quality services for young Romani children and families.
