Budai Community Service

When you can help people and learn from it.

Every year we help to prepare ninth graders for their first community service experience with the generous support of OTP Bank in the Budai Secondary School. Then the students realise that they are capable of pursuing a good cause by joining organisations or, generating new ideas. In the past years we have taken them to animal shelters, elderly homes, charity shops, orphanages, picked up garbage and prepared food for the needy. This way students can fulfill the 50 hours of compulsory community service more prepared while these programs help to forge a community with their classmates as well. What we would like to achieve is that school-based community service be not considered exclusively as a mandatory issue, but an enriching learning experience encouraging young people to take social responsibility.
