What is it about?

The Hungarian Evangelical Fellowship’s project forms homeless people to social worker. At the project period end a work allocation also helps them to emerge from this situation. Key elements of this innovative project: instead of simply aid, vocation; rather than support waiting, active and sustainable participation; instead of care, self-care. Briefly: learning for working and self-preservation.
