Foundation for Besenyszög received 24,18 million Ft non-refundable subsidy by winning the tender of EFOP-1.3.5-16 within the confines of the Széchenyi 2020 program. The aim of the program was to improve the community, involving the 14-35-year-old young people, the senior age-group, the Church and the civil associations in order to reach the whole society.

Further goal was to strengthen the co-operation of the families, to popularize the voluntary works, to intorduce the good-practices, to strengthen the social relationships, to motivate being committed to the community, to subsurve the social participation of senior people and the community development.

The project is implemented between 01.03.2017 and 01.03.2020, being organized by Foundation for Besenyszög. Project location: Besenyszög. During the project, a regular series of activities are going to be done in order to meet the goals. Within the confines of the project, target groups are recruited for five times to create new micro-communities and to improve the capacity and activity of the existing communities. Involving co-operating partners, self-education is hold in order to adapt ourselves to local needs. Events, supporting the co-operation among generations (like e.g. creation of “Our little garden”, making pickles, cooking marmalade, picking elder) have important role in the project. Further important element of the project is to organize and mediate the services provided by voluntary activities.

During the project, continuous contact and supplying of data is provided. We provide information for people within the confines of consulting hours, and we are looking forward to their reccommendations as well. In order to popularization and support of the co-operation within the community, and the motivation of voluntary, we organize civil and voluntary days, moreover, a professional platform is also implemented. A further goal of the project is to care about and patronize the new communities.
