Idea pitch

It is never too late to learn. In order for the socially and existentially deprived population to be able to make decisions, have a say in their own lives, and sustain themselves in the long run, it is necessary to pass on knowledge that they can utilize on their own. Our goal is integration through knowledge transfer. Community advocacy, developing the ability to influence local affairs, social control.

Where will your project idea take place?

Jánd, Magyarország

What is the specific societal challenge faced by this region?

Unemployment is a serious problem in the county. Its population is approx. 800 people, 80% of them Hungarian. The unemployment rate is 5% higher than the county average. For years, the state has not provided enough resources to increase the social asia of this population. Our goal is to support and train the socially or existentially deprived population living in the area, thus developing civic competence, enforcing community interests, developing the ability to influence local affairs, active participation in decision-making, social control. Furthermore, integration through knowledge transfer and the utilization of resources is a long-term self-sustaining cooperation, promoting the establishment of a cooperative that ensures the livelihood of the population by utilizing resources.

Who are you doing it for?

Jánd has a population of about 800 people, and our target group is all adults over the age of 18 who are able or willing to work without ethnicity. We work with residents who are socially and / or existentially in need. We are targeting citizens who have so far thought they have no say in local decisions, as they have decided well in advance anyway. They are uninterested in what is happening, which is why they are not aware of exactly what is happening in their environment. The foundation’s goal is to overcome this lack of interest, to shake up the community by highlighting issues that affect them all. We focus on values such as social justice, human rights, democracy and the rule of law. improving people's quality of life.

The action plan is for several years, which is divided into smaller units and micro-projects.
The priority is the development of citizens through trainings, their transformation into a collective. Training and forging into a cohesive community will help citizens to take collective action on issues that affect them.

What are the expected results?

Residents, institutions, NGOs, local government, etc. with the participation of the action plan. The different tasks, responsibilities and scope of implementation are clarified. The number of participants and their commitment is increasing. New institutions are emerging. The local public is evolving. The settlement is building new relationships with other settlements. People get to know each other better, discover common ground, expand the range of participants in the project. The local community is strengthened, tolerance, solidarity, empathy, values, development of attitudes. The public is the guarantee of the functioning of local democracy. This ensures that informed citizens are aware of their rights and can enforce their will.

How does your idea strengthen active citizenship at a local and community level?

The project provides knowledge, training and discussion forums to improve the quality of life and take an active role in active citizenship.
The basis of the public is information, and the goal is for this information to reach the public and be received and possibly discussed. Our goal is to reach out not only to active citizens through the public, but also to those who have so far shown no interest in the problems that affect them. Social challenges such as prosperity or sustainability are in the common interest of all of us. The aim of our program is to make the population aware of and shape the processes taking place at the local level, and to strengthen the autonomy and initiative of the population, which will enable the success of democratic processes in this small community.

Why is this idea important to you?

The embeddedness of the project in the local community can be traced back to 2010, when the Foundation established the Jándon site and the Rehabilitation Skills Development and Training Center, where 150 people graduated in art therapists (training, music, dance, categories). Our present project also includes training in art therapy for the rehabilitation of injured people. The project team (project manager 30 years, financial manager 25 years, project assistant, trainers 5-20 years of professional experience) ensures the achievement of the goal with several years of professional background, we plan to involve additional volunteers for the implementation. Motivation: improving the quality of life of the disadvantaged target group, knowledge transfer, community development.
