CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

The Hungarian Information and Cultural Centre in New Delhi, as a socially responsible institution, aims to reach out to the broader sections of Indian society as well. However, due to cultural and social differences as well as the lack of education and English knowledge, our programmes are not available for the lower strata of society. We feel it necessary that we reach out to these sections of the society, particularly to children, and involve them in our cultural and educational activities in some or the other way. Therefore we got in touch with Nai Disha School and Fountain Head Foundation, both educating unprivileged children, and organised a Santa Claus party – a Mikulás Day as we say in Hungarian - in the front lawn of our Centre for 150 young students with the help of other organisations and private persons who have generously donated stationary, toys and food items to these children. Besides organising a fun-filled programme and giving the children a life-time experience, we could give them 300 gift packets, too.

The Director of the Hungarian Centre and his wife paid a visit to Nai Disha School on 9th December 2011, gave them a huge gift packet of stationary and food items and also had an insight of the school activities on an ordinary working day there.
