There is a lack of effective policy according to the integration problems of Roma youth in Hungary. The school system faces a complex task based on Roma students, because of the failure caused by the frontal school system the Roma students cannot keep up the syllabus thus they lose their ability to proactive activities. The goal of the organization is to increase the socialization and attentional capacity of children. Verbal skills will be developed and perspective thinking method will be evolved. The participating schools and the minority organizations will be able to implement the projects. The cooperation between communities and schools will provide the background of sustainability.
