Dr. Ambedkar School

Dear Supporter!

2020.09.02. Categorized: Front Page   

Dr. Ambedkar School was established in 2007 in Sajókaza with the help and support of the Jai Bhim Community. The aim of the school is to open up the possibility of further education in communities where the proportion of graduates does not reach 1%.

With the help of the Open Society Foundations and the Hungarian Charity Service of the Order of Malta, the school building, designed by architect Margit Pelényi, opened its doors in Sajókaza, In the past 13 years at our school, 113 adults have completed their primary school education. As well, 114 people have taken their graduating exam in a given subject.

In 2016, the school was able to relocate to a new building in Miskolc with the support of the Badur Foundation. The Vice President of the Republic of India Hamid Ansari and his wife Salma Ansari supported the expansion of the school building.

In 2018, funding from the Hungarian Government made possible the establishment of the Martin Luther King Dormitory, which closely assists the work of the school. During the dorm’s inauguration ceremony, Félix Farkas, the Parliamentary Roma Nationalist Spokesman, cut the ribbon.

The public education contract of the Dr. Ámbédkar School expired on August 31, 2020. The Ministry of Human Resources will not renew the contract and will not enter into a new one with the school administration. At the same time, the Ministry reduced the operational support of other educational institutions working for the benefit of students from disadvantaged backgrounds, including the János Wesley School and the Igazgyöngy School of Art in Berettyóújfalu. In total, 30 million forints (approximately 84,000 Euros) will be missing from the coming school year.

The Ministry of Innovation and Technology (ITM) took steps to fund the school a year ago by transforming the Dr. Ámbédkar School into a technical school, so that our students can learn a trade in addition to preparing for their graduating exams. To this end, the institution received state-of-the-art furniture, a computer server, and developer equipment from ITM as well as support from the Idetartozunk Egyesület (We Belong Here Association) and the Roma Education Fund. The transformation into a technical school has also begun to take place, but due to a change in legislation, our school will only be able to fall under the direction of the ITM starting in 2021. As a result, the school is ineligible to receive government financial support for its vocational orientation grade. Based on this, the institution falls short approximately 18 million forint (approximately 50,000 Euros) needed for the school year.

Over the years, our school has developed a scholarship system with the Roma communities with whom we work, called Manumissio, built on the private donations of many individuals. The Manumissio website can be found at the following link: www.5barat.com

Our School 1st Part

Our School (1st Part)
Our school is named after Dr. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar (April 14, 1891-December 6, 1956) an Indian jurist, scholar and political leader. Born into a poor, dalit (untouchable) family and subjected to intense socio-economic discrimination, Ambedkar spent his life fighting against the Indian caste system and the idea of untouchability. We see his message being relevant for gypsies in our country today.

Our School 2nd Part

Our School (2nd Part)
Our school is serving in a region of northern Hungary where the proportion of high school graduates having matriculation examination is under 1%. At the gypsy settlements of Sajokaza, Lak, Alsovadasz, Homrogd there are thousands of people without the chance of secondary education. We believe, that the application of proper pedagogy will result in the elevation of above mentioned ratio similar to any other group of today's society, and our students so become competitive participants of the labour market.

Our School 3rd Part

Our School (3rd Part)
Our school offers person centered pedagogy, informatics, English language and sciences. By activating dormant energies of unused manpower we bring high grade secondary education to the poorest communities of our homeland.

Our School 4th Part

Our School (4th Part)
The objective of our school is to show the way out of poverty and make environmental stimuli enjoyable for everybody. We knowingly have encouraged our children to make friends with students of other schools years before founding the school. Our task is to transmit the essence of better life standards of more prosperous social strata to our students and their families. It is especially important in health issues, for we do not study to die early as the poor of the villages.

Our School 5th Part

Our School (5th Part)
Even though the school is situated in segregated environment, our efforts are to integrate. The goal is to bring high standard education to a totally unprovided area. The want should be satisfied. The effects of this service then attract non-Romany inhabitants, and lead to building valuable relationships around the segregated community. We believe in the possibility of dark spots on the map today to become bright stars tomorrow.

Our School 6th Part

Our School (6th Part)
We emphasize the values of Romany lifestyle. Even though the life is changing in Alsovadasz, Sajokaza, Lak, Homrogd and the other villages, people are going to have large families with lots of cousins, uncles and aunts for a few more decades. However nice and precious it is, the public opinion of the rest of the county might be different. One of the pedagogic tasks of the school is to provide students with well based confidence to commit to their own chosen lifestyle.

Our School 7th Part

Our School (7th Part)
The aim that our students want to achieve is high school graduation. Trade is offered only to those who want it along with graduation. Even for people fell out of primary education but wanting to learn we make understand that the goal is not just completing primary school but to change their social stand.
