I am György Hámori, I graduated in philosophy at the university. Contrary to the beliefs philosophy is concerned with practical issues and even as a student I was wondering how I could apply what I learned to my life, my community and my work. Having previously worked with educational, cultural and community programmes in the nonprofit field I have experienced the power of community and volunteer spirit and its transformative impact on people. What drove me into the world of community foundations is that it stands for a set of values whereby local people can implement a diverse and varied community vision. And that is philosophy… in practice!
