What is it about?

Call and Raise program's goal is to give young people (ages 12-18) living in segregated settlements a chance to continue their education, to obtain a high school diploma or an even higher education. The project is innovative because we use online education to supplement face-to-face education in a complex way. Bagázs's program is the only one in the country that provides the opportunity for independent study at home for youth living in segregation and poverty, in addition to supporting families on several levels in eliminating factors that hinder learning (housing, health, financial etc.)
