Our project is the continuation of the already existing, and successful Never Give Up House in Szendrőlád. Our Association have started a generative integrational program in 2009 for the extreme poverty stricken children of Szendrőlád. With the active participation of the disabled youth, the project was born, and the local Roma community played a significant role in it too. This program responds well to the problems caused by segregation and poverty.
In order to make a real lasting change, we need to reach the adults and the young people too, and enable them to use their inner resources to reach their own goals, first with our help, but eventually independently. That is why we want to extend our program to the whole community.
A building was donated to our foundation in Szendrőlád, and the possibility of renovating it, would enable us to open a local center, where the underprivileged inhabitants of all ages could partake of programs that give hope and encouragement in their daily struggles.
We are planning on organizing a field trip to visit Buchs, Switzerland - where the Reitsportzentrum Buchs SG opened their doors to receive children from Szendrőlád.
Our project will continue on even after the Swiss Contribution ends. Our hope is to expand our program to the whole Edelény-region.
