We only provide opportunities! The primary aim of our programs is the deliberate development and empowerment of the local community through our presence in the settlements. We have been working in two segregated Roma settlements in Pest county, in Bag since 2011 and in Dány since 2017.
Based on a holistic approach of our professional work we support entire families with separate programmes for children and for adults.
We are working to eliminate socio-cultural disadvantages of people living in settlements so that they do not inherit them.
All this can only be achieved if we jointly set up changes in the community of the settlements and in the majority society. Our association seeks to make the Roma people more capable, while at the same time sensitizing and making more accepting the people belonging to the majority society.
The basics and value system of BAGázs is a starting point for all our programs, as all of them are always based on local needs, so they are constantly evolving and adapting to the community.
Most of our programs are organized by volunteers, so they are directly involved in professional work.
