"Maybe we are a key contributor to preserve democracy. And with all the painful history and survivals that we had in the past, now we are still here, and we are courageous and brave to take action!" - Selvije Mustafi.

🙋‍♀️Congratulations Selva X Mustafi for your presentation at the Copenhagen Democracy Summit 2022👏👏👏 .. brave, clever, skillful and inspiring. To all the world, the Roma and non-Roma community has shown that Roma women and girls can, they know how, and have more than the necessary capacities. We are proud of you and thank you! 👏🙌

„Можеби ние сме клучен елемент кој ќе придонесе за зачувување на демократијата. И покрај болната историја и преживувања што ги имавме во минатото, сè уште сме тука, и сме храбри и бестрашни да преземеме акција!“ - Селвије Мустафи.
🙋‍♀️ Честитки Селва за твоето излагање! ... храбро, умно, умешно и инспиративно. На целиот свет, на ромската и не-ромската заедница покажа дека жените и девојки Ромки можат, умеат, ги имаат повеќе од потребните капацитети. Се гордееме со тебе и ти благодариме! 👏🙌

✊Огромно задоволство ни претставува кога гледаме успешни резултати и приказни од страна на младите девојки, како Селва, кои беа дел од првиот сет на РАЖМ „ЛУЛУДИ“ Обука за политички вештини за жени и девојки Ромки во 2016 година, поддржано од страна на Амбасадата на САД, преку проектот „Моќта на жените Ромки во демократијата“, заедно со обучувачите: Сонѓул Ахмед, Елвис Мемети и Зурија Мемедова ( https://bit.ly/3twcpQI )
