NCSD continues to visit projects presenting good practices in Hungary in 2018. On January 30 2018, we visited Igazgyöngy Foundation (http://igazgyongyalapitvany.org/) in Berettyóújfalu, Biharkeresztes and Told.
The foundation has been active in one of the 33 most underprivileged small regions, in the vicinity of Berettyóújfalu since 1999. One of their main missions is talent management, for which they run an elementary art school focusing specifically on disadvantaged Roma children.
