From language lessons to rap: a day centre fights to keep Lithuania's Roma kids in school

A nonprofit in Lithuania is providing resources for children from the Roma community in order to decrease the rate of students who drop out of school early. The historically-marginalized group faces social stigmas and economic challenges. A day center offers a space to participate in extracurricular activities and volunteers also visit children who skip school with offers of homework help. Their efforts have resulted in a gradual increase of Roma children who stay in school.
