Come with Us to the 8th district!
Unusual city walk for social dialogue
We invite you to wander around one of Budapest’s most colourful districts. The aim is to get to know a special part of the 8th district and the people who live there.
Our walk is unique in that it is led by young Roma volunteers from the Foundation. They share their personal experiences of the area and talk about a predominantly Roma neighbourhood. During the walk, participants can ask any questions they like. The respondents’ Roma origin and their personal experiences of the district make the experience authentic. In this way, we can contribute to discovering the values of the neighbourhood and to reducing fears and prejudices.
You can help too,
help us reach more young people!
The Uccu Foundation has been working in the field of informal education, social dialogue, volunteering and community development since 2010. We believe that real learning can only happen through dialogue, experience and active participation. Most of our educational work is carried out by a team of trained and enthusiastic young volunteers.
Support the Uccu Foundation to become an independent NGO defending equal opportunities, a society free of prejudice and racism!
In the track of Roma culture
In Roma thaj Romnya Walk, lets get to know together the outstanding Roma representatives of Roma culture and history. Starting from the József Attila memorial, we discover the figures of the Hungarian arts and fine-arts, and then we remember of historical heroes and victims of Roma origins at the Holocaust Memorial Center and at Corvin köz stations. The walk ends at Musician Gipsies’ park (Muzsikus cigányok parkja), where we can experience the diversity of traditional and modern music.
