Statement on the war in Ukraine

For almost three decades, the Carpathian Foundation, which embraces the bordering areas of Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and Ukraine, has contributed to the development of the Carpathian Region. Our Foundation fosters cross-border cooperation, overcoming language barriers, cultural and historical differences to strengthen the role of civil society in local development, thus contributing to the territorial cohesion of the Carpathians.

The current war in Europe contradicts everything the Carpathian Foundation and its partners stand for.

1 million HUF for Ukrainian refugees!

Today we were able to donate supplies (medicine, medical supplies, bandages, etc.) worth more than HUF 1 million to our Ukrainian colleagues to be sent to hospitals in Transcarpathia! Thank you for the support from which you made this donation possible. We are continuing to collect for this purpose in our Emergency Response Fund for Ukrainians, with which we would like to further support civil society organizations and civic initiatives helping refugees fleeing to Hungary from Ukraine! Thank You!

The Early Years are important for support

On 15 February 2024, the Board of Directors of the Carpathian Foundation awarded a grant of HUF 16 million to four NGOs in the Early Years Matter Program, with HUF 4 million each. The Hungarian Roma Association of Szomolya, the Somnakuno Drom Roma Women's Civil Association of Nagykálló, the SZETA Eger and the 21st Century Roma Women's National Association of Nyíregyháza  got the grant for early skills development of marginalized children in the North-Eastern Hungary region until the end of the year.

Platform for inclusive early childhood services

On 7 February 2024, we organised the third meeting in Nyíregyháza to build a platform for inclusive early childhood services.

The aim of the platform is to improve the accessibility and quality of early childhood services in Hungary through the cooperation and joint action of families, parents, institutions and civil society actors, to ensure that everyone has access to them, that everyone can use them, and that the proper development of young children is ensured for all through quality education, upbringing, care and other services.

We are looking for you!

Overall Needs Assessment Report

To revitalize the Carpathian Civil Society Platform we concluded a needs assessment through a survey and workshops to identify current challenges, opportunities, and priorities and to involve the civil society organizations from Slovakia, Ukraine, Poland, Romania and Hungary to map the topics they are interested in to collaborate across the borders. Based on the results an Overall Needs Assessment Report was prepared, which provides a comprehensive analysis of the needs assessment, including common needs and challenges identified across the Carpathian Platform.
