In a family home in northern Hungary’s Gyöngyöspata region, a group of young Roma gather to play a board game based on logic. The evening’s activity is organised by Careamic, a childdevelopment project set up by a group of four volunteers from Budapest – university student Dávid Miklós, mathematician Pál Galicza, consultant Ágnes Pletser and ceramicist Éva Hámori – to expand extra-curricular activities for Roma children. To fund their scheme, the Careamic team have also founded a social enterprise that works with the children’s parents to make and sell ceramic products.
