Serbia, child poverty…

In the last years, the wider social, economic and political changes have greatly affected the lives of children, while many families from the Roma population face particular disadvantages, live in slum housing without sanitation facilities or clean water.

At the age of six or seven when children have to start school, poorer children will often stay at home: a quarter of poor children do not attend primary education in Serbia.

I met experts from Serbian MODS coalition and various NGOs like Association for Development of Children and Youth - Open Club and Friends of Children New Belgrade to talk about these issues.
