Providing a platform for dialogue between Roma and non-Roma
Uccu Roma Informal Educational Foundation is a Hungarian Roma civil society organization. The main mission of Uccu is to combat prejudices and negative stereotypes related to Roma, so we can all live in a more tolerant and open society. The lack of acceptance often derives from the lack of knowledge about other cultures and people.
In Hungary those who reflect anti-Gypsyist attitudes are typically those who know the least about the group they reject. Our Foundation provides an opportunity for primary and secondary school students from all over Hungary to meet and engage in a meaningful conversation with their young Roma peers.
An important part of our work is community development. We provide continuous training opportunities for our volunteers and partners.
Upon joining our team, our dedicated young Roma volunteers will gain invaluable professional experience.
We approach both youngsters and adults. Our methods are inspirational, thoughtful, and develop critical thinking.
Through dialogue and direct contact with our young Roma volunteers, participants will receive a credible experience, which can demolish prejudice.

We believe that real learning happens through dialogue, personal experience and active participation.
Most of our educational sessions are led by well prepared and enthusiastic young volunteers.
