The school of the Foundation, SAMISULI is a community-based music program that is fostering social change by ensuring everyday musical education for underprivileged children and young people mainly of Roma origin, inspired by the Venezuela-based “El Sistema” and the Hungarian “Kodály Method”.
We work with nearly 1800 children in 21 locations all over Hungary with the help of 100 qualified music teachers. Our pupils or their families do not have to pay us any tuition fee. Our pupils often live in extreme poverty, most of them inherit nothing but the burden of exclusion, hopelessness and eventually, crime. When they are given the chance, these kids have all the potential to have a better life than their parents. The individual guidance and the faith in them that they experience during classes, and the recognition after concerts give them motivation, a handhold, and a vision for the future.
