Through our area experience, we are permanently building and developing our social presence that provide the continuous work not only in Hungary, but also in the European area.

After 1998, the Foundation started to focus on new methodologies like art therapy and sociotherapy to prepare people for a life void of labelling, where they can attain personal fullness, and where individual and communal cultural diversity is respected within society. Further aim of our sociotherapy is to overwrite old patterns of “learned inability” and to develop self-identity and personal competence.

The last period  the Foundation  built a very large network with Roma community, working with parents and students as well.

Our mission is to create a multicultural and tolerant society that is able to integrate the values of the different cultures on both personal and social platforms. We foster any social structure that enhance the equal opportunities in the personal life and the social communities. We support democratic participation and social dialogue.

We have horizontal priorities such as:

  • The achievement of relevant and high quality skills and competences, supporting individuals in acquiring and developing key competences in order to foster employability, social-educational and professional development. 

  • The promotion of open and innovative practices, methods and pedagogies, developing learning materials and tools. 

  • The professional development of educators and youth workers, especially in dealing with early school leaving (ESL), learners with disadvantaged backgrounds, diversity in classrooms and other contexts and work-based learning.

 Our two school education priorities:
