In this game there are more than 9 million people around the board. But many of them may be left out of the rounds altogether. It is up to you who to give the dice to!

This is not a call for aid, this is an investment offer for you!

We have been working with and for the people from the Roma settlement of Bag for the past five years.
Since that, on the settlement of Bag:

  • the number of people attending schools has increased
  • the number of those who are able to take care of themselves has increased
  • the number of those employed has increased
  • the illiteracy rate has decreased
  • the rate of crime has decreased
  • the rate of debts has decreased

We were curious about the actual social profit made by our work. According to the fresh study of IFUA Non-Profit Partner Management Consultants this profit is incredibly high: 636%. For details and to see the whole study please scroll down.

Invest 3000 HUF in the players from Bag in every round so that more and more people get a chance to take a step forward.

The future is up to you. It’s not just a game.


At BAGázs we believe that successful Roma integration is a profitable social investment. Roma and non-Roma, rich and poor, we have to solve issues of deep poverty together. BAGázs helps those living in segregation in their struggle for a brighter future, and we need the support of investors – individuals and companies – to do so.

The benefits of self-sufficiency

What we learnt from the study of IFUA is that it is profitable to make someone who wasn’t able to support himself self-sufficient. It is profitable not only socially but also economically. The study calculated with several factors and found that each individual investor

CAN MAKE 19,000 HUF SOCIAL PROFIT PER MONTH WITH A 3000 HUF INVESTMENT,

which means that you can calculate with a 6.36-fold profit if you support our complex programs taking place in the Roma settlement of Bag.

Why is it a good investment?

Let’s see how you get a 636% profit if you invest in creating opportunities!

Let’s take a look at a teenage boy who lives in the Roma settlement of Bag. You support him with 3000 HUF per month, supplemented by the complex developing programs of BAGázs. On the long run this boy gains several benefits from this: he can find a job; he will lead a lawful and healthy life; he will engage in conscious family planning and pass on good patterns to his children. Let us see the profit of the state: less public work and social benefits; more taxpaying; less drugs and crime; lower demand for medical services; and the ability of people to pay their own bills.

How does your 3000 HUF investment become 19,000 HUF?

The net income of a public worker living in the settlement is max. 622,000 HUF (2075 euros) per year. This is the minimum (without contributions) expense of the state per year for every public worker who doesn’t have another job. If the public worker found a job at the primary job market, his wage would not be paid by the state, so we could save the amount of his salary.

If he could finish secondary education and earned at least the minimum wage for his work, he would have a net income of 1.029.000 HUF (3430 euros) per year. He would earn 400.000 HUF (1330 euros) more per year than a public worker.

Furthermore, the state would have an income from the contributions paid by his employer – this would be about 960.000 HUF (3200 euros) per year.

If we consider the decrease of drug use and crime as well as the effects conscious family planning and a healthier lifestyle too, the yearly savings of the society would increase by further 955.000 HUF (3180 euros).

That is, if we can set up the youth from the settlement for a better path in life,

  • his profit is 400.000 HUF (1330 euros) and
  • the state’s proceeds are 1.600.000 HUF (5330 euros) every year.
  • What is more, almost 1 million HUF (3330 euros) social profit is made thanks to reducing levels of drug use and crime, healthier lifestyles and conscious family planning.
What have we reached so far?

In the past five years more than 200 people from the Roma settlement have taken part in our programs. We mobilized hundreds of volunteers. The change has begun: five years ago only 5 in 140 adults had a proper job – today 20 of them work. 7 of them gained a vocational school degree and 7 of them study for the A-levels.
