Bearing in mind a positive experience, the participants unanimously found the need to continue networking even after the end of the project.

On the 1st of October 2022 we visited the sanctuary and memorial place of the Roma Sait, the Tetkica Bibija, which was established by the First Serbian Gypsy association in the 1920s.
