BAGázs // Let’s play together!
BAGázs Nonprofit Association was established 5 years ago to support 400 Roma people who live in the Roma settlement of Bag. As of today the association has worked with more than 500 volunteers and has the following results: setting up advance payment electronic meter at 14 families who thus have become legal electricity users. 10 adults returned to education as part of our education sessions to finish elementary school, one of them already graduated. The young adults, aged between 16 and 21, who come to our sessions, have not started a family yet as a self-conscious family planner and 6 of them are currently continuing their education in high school. This year we will move on to another settlement!
Nominated by Anna Kádár:
‘The creative concept of last yearend’s classic supporting ad film that called the attention to the importance of the social integration of those living in Roma settlements in Bag, correctly follows the social situation it presents. It talks clearly and understandably about something we all know here in Hungary, but many of us tend to ignore or prefer to forget, not to acknowledge. It targets in an innovative way groups that are somewhat sensible socially, but not very active (not ready to help) together with the less sensible groups. Its creative solution is interesting, raises awareness and it is also playful. The message is well targeted: if you support the organization, apart from helping the valuable work of Bagázs for integration, you do something for the welfare of Hungarian society.’
