Hi Matthias,

It would be quite difficult to describe our last 3 years in a couple of lines.

Still I got some links with english content explaining quite well what happened in Hungary:


I'm absolutely open to cooperate in the future.
We continue of course to push here, I'll update you as soon as I have any news.

Hello Peter,

thanks for the update from Hungary.

Can you describe the different campaigns, and tell us from your
experience why some of them failed and other were successful?

It would be perfect if you push now in Hungary again. We defenetely want
to work on other countries, if everything works out in the Netherlands
(perhaps even if it does not work out).  If we find volunteers in other
countries we can start there, too.
