The selected location is a socially marginalized location in the Roma village of Rožkovce. It has currently 500 inhabitants, more than half of which are children. Almost all the adults are unemployed. The existing community center is a rented room in a building that belongs to the municipality. Over 150 children visit the community center daily and the available space has a leaking roof and insufficient heating. In days of heavy rains or severe frost, the community center has to be closed.

ARCHITECTURE FOR HUMANITY
The role of Architecture for Humanity is essential throughout all the project development stages. The first step is to analyze the feasibility of the project in order to design an appropriate building that relates to the existing context and the community can take full ownership of the project. Architecture for Humanity is managing the design, construction and construction administration of the school, making sure that the project represents the community’s objectives and the project is developed within schedule and budget. The role of Architecture for Humanity also consists in post-occupancy services in order to build a quality infrastructure that will be sustainable and used by the Roma Village community for many years to come.
