Fellow Since 2015
This description of Hacer Foggo's work was prepared when Hacer Foggo was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2015.
Hacer and ROMFO bring together Roma NGOs and communities across Turkey to unleash their potentials in bringing full citizenship to Roma people. Under the ROMFO umbrella, Turkey’s Roma people are co-creating solutions to their mutual problems, getting empowered by practicing changemaking first-hand, and consequently, challenging the stereotypes forced onto them. ROMFO is also acting as a platform to effectively plan Roma people’s future and communicate with decision makers, helping realize the potential of Roma NGOs to cause systematic change for Turkey’s most underserved populations.
