About Us

Our foundation was established in 1992 in Budapest as a non-governmental organization ran by Roma people. If you are looking for real information about the Roma community, if you are interested in our culture and traditions or if you want to know more about the everyday life of Roma people, then you are in the right place.

We believe that our work carries important messages for the future generation, so in our research we strive to understand and document even the smallest details about the traditions and history of our community. We invite you to get to know our research activities!

We believe that personal experience helps destroy harmful prejudice and stereotypes, and this is why we search for and present unique stories in our films that many would not be able to hear otherwise. We organize art events where we portray our community in a way many have never seen before. We invite you to get to know our art work!

We believe in the power of knowledge, and we want Roma children to be proud of their identity in school. This is why we organize camps and workshops, where participants gain valuable knowledge that often translates to life-changing experience for the youth.
