It is interesting to know that:
Today around 36 million Roma live in the world.
Of these, 18 million live in India, which is the origin of these ethnic groups (Rajasthan).
There are 9-12 million Roma in Europe, in Spain, France and Eastern Europe.
One million Roma live in the United States and 800,000 in Brazil.
In relation to the population, the highest percentage of Roma is in Bulgaria (10.5%).
Roma are associated with poverty and their behaviour is perceived by the rest of the population as antisocial or inappropriate. The Salesians work in various countries of the world for a greater inclusion of Roma and to give them education and defense of their rights.
