Our team

In Romaversitas we support Roma students to gain access to quality education.
We believe that education provides choices for children and a means to accomplish their goals and full potentials.
We support them on the path to become Romani intellectuals, who advocate for their communities and shape the narratives about Roma.

Boglárka Fedorkó
Executive Director

I am a human rights expert and Roma feminist activist. I am an economist by training, who is passionate about social justice and has been active in diverse fields, such as international education inclusion projects, Roma rights advocacy and women empowerment. In the past 10 years, I have worked for international organisations in the field of migration, trafficking, education inclusion and LGBT rights. Additionally, I helped the communications and fundraising of Romani Design, the world’s first Roma fashion brand. In 2020, I created Ame Panzh, a collective of young Roma activists to initiate an honest dialogue about the exclusion practices harming minorities in Hungary. In 2021, we were nominated for the Freedom Prize of the Hungarian Civil Liberties Union. In 2022, we received the Raoul Wallenberg Prize.

As a proud Romaversitas alumna, I know how important Romaversitas’s role is in making access possible to quality education and in creating a supportive community. My Romaversitas years were life-changing and I hope our students will also have the best memories of our time spent together.
