Summary (goals and purposes of the project)
In our program,students help the chidren together with „buddies” from Bag and the BAGázs as well as with the parents. We advertise the program in schools and in the settlement, we organise a training for the „buddies” and the students and we hold parents’ meetings. Every two weeks, we have discussions with the volunteers that we document (writing, photo, video). We organise a conference to make our program visible to locals.

We cooperate with the local school,the childrens welfare service to follow the improvement of the participants and with Demokratikus Ifjúságért Alapítvány to guarantee the professionalism of our work. As the result of our project,the childrens school performance will improve, the parents will experience how they can help their children,the local prejudices will be reduced as well as the social sensitivity of secondary school students will become stronger.
