My name is György Hámori, and I graduated in philosophy. Philosophy deals with absolutely practical issues and as a student I was already thinking about how I would be able to transfer what I have learnt into my life, my community, my work. I have previously worked with educational, cultural and community programmes, always in a non-profit form, so I have experienced the power of community and volunteer spirit and its transformative effect on the individual.
What impressed me about the work of community foundations was that it is committed to a set of values that can be used to realise a diverse and varied community vision, where the local population can realise their dreams on their own. And thisis but the practical implementation of philosophy.
