There are approximately 10.000 people with Down-syndrome living in Hungary. The organisations representing them and their families are individually too weak to represent their interests. The goal of the project is to build a country-wide network by strengthening the relationship between the organisations. The network is built on common experiences and lobby power, thus it can effectively advocate for the interest of people with Down syndrome and their families. The project is built on the cooperation of the involved civil organisation and informal parents’ groups, who are essential in making the network efficient.
