For the first time, The Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) dedicates specific funding for promoting the integration of Roma in and through education.
My Beautiful School is a project financed within this measure.

Between 29th-30th October 2012, at Villa Montesca in Città di Castello, Italy, it took place the European Workshop ”The Montessori's Method addressed to reinforce the presence of the Roma children in the public education system”.
The workshop aimed at ”actualizing” the Montessori's method in order to introduce didactic and pedagogic innovations addressed to favour the participation of the Roma children in the educative system. At the workshop participated teachers and experts coming from Lithuania, Romania and Italy.

European Justice Commissioner, Viviane Reding, please for education for Roma children. She believes their living conditions will worsen unless definitive action is taken now.
Speaking on French state radio, she said: ”If we can’t manage to educate these children, if we can’t provide them a normal job, it will be another lost generation.
Our generation is responsible for making sure that illegal camps cease to exist and provide some normal housing for these people, for making sure that the girls don’t give birth at 12 years of age, and that the children go to school normally, so that instead of hanging around in the street they are at work and are useful for society and the public.”

On the 13th of June 2013 the Final Conference of the project My Beautiful School took place in Vilnius. The Conference was organized by The Public Institution Roma Community Centre. The event benefited from the participation of representatives of relevant authorities, experts in education and NGOs that reported their experiences in projects specifically focused on topics addressed to Roma people.
