- Youth knowing very little about the other countries that are EU members and about other countries outside EU;
- the gap between Roma youth and the other youth is very deep, both ethnics are manifesting low tolerance for the other, situation that should not exist in the “European Family”;
- a lot of kids are left home only with their grandparents, because the parents are working outside Romania’s borders, a thing that has major repercussions in the youngster life, affecting them on a personal, social or educational level; etc.
