WEKERLE PROJECT

I. Vegetable collection and distribution 

Since 2015, volunteers have been spending their Thursday afternoons collecting fruit and vegetable donations in the market of Wekerletelep. After collecting the donations, volunteers bring them to their partner families in the community. 

II. Saturday school kids mentoring 

Every weekend, eight children from different partner families spend an afternoon of fun with volunteers. Tutors don't need to know how to speak Hungarian, and English is taught using games and other interactive activities. The  goals of the program include improving the kids' self-confidence and their social skills. This creates a cheerful, positive, and accepting space for the children in the community.
