The organisation’s philosophy


"We are determined to evolve into Hungary’s most productive non-profit organisation in terms of concrete results and extend the implementation of our activities nationwide.”


"We use our human resources and professional know-how to support people’s empowerment through the provision of services aimed at raising their quality of life at home and school, as well as in the workplace.

About the Association:

The organisation’s full name is Social, Cultural and Educational Association for Equal Opportunities for Vulnerable Youths (Roma and non-Roma) in Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén County. BHIM RAO stands for two things: firstly, it is made up of the first letters of the organisation’s full name, whilst it also refers to Bhim Rao Ambedkhar, the great Indian statesman who fought his way up the social ladder in India from the untouchables’ caste to Minister for Justice under Gandhi’s premiership.

Founded in 2002, the BHIM RAO Association is a non-profit organisation with high public interest status. Our main objective involves supporting Roma and non-Roma youths with multiple disadvantages in their access to primary, secondary and higher education, and to ensure that they achieve good results in these institutions. The cultural development activities we provide and the social work we engage in are aligned to our main objective, and are organised and implemented in a manner to attain the key targets we have set.

The BHIM RAO Association supports the target group in receiving quality education and vocational training by organising training courses, cultural and extra-curricular activities; contacting educational institutions and supporting the group’s empowerment. We oppose all forms of discrimination and segregation. The organisation’s strategic aim relates to implementing complex programs, which not only reach the widest possible scope of disadvantaged youths, but help lift whole families out of poverty by ensuring that children complete secondary-level education, learn a trade and obtain professional qualifications, hence building an educational system which inhibits the reproduction of employment disadvantages. In addition, we also organise trainings and re-training programs for the family members of these children, which enables them to acquire marketable knowledge and jobs and in turn re-enter the primary labour market by getting permanent jobs.
