Sajókaza Dreams!

2009.10.19. Categorized: Uncategorized   

Get the Flash Player to see this player. Jai Bhim Network invited me (Pardeep), Bharat and Swati to visit their school, organisation and participate in the various activities carried out by them for the betterment of  Gypsy/Roma community of Hungary. Gypsies/Romas are about 6-7% of total population of Hungary. They live the live in separate ghettos! Their lifestyle is alien to Hungarian people, despite they are living with them from about 700-1000 years. Gypsies/Romas have with social acceptability since the time they left India, probably around 1300 AD. They have been discriminated and prosecuted for centuries. They are the first to be suspected and booked in any crime and indiscipline. The word “Gypsy” is used as an insult to indicate “a cheat”. Very few Hungarian people seems to have actually met gypsies/romas, but they have all the stereotypes that these gypsies are dirty looking, cheaters etc. or they have seen them in movies only where gypsies/romas are shown as a degraded character.

How can you volunteer at our school?

2009.09.19. Categorized: Uncategorized   

Due to our successes, more and more people get into contact with us. Many of them ask: how can they volunteer at us?

The two most important features of our institution, the Dr. Ámbédkar Secondary Grammar School, Vocational School and Elementary School for Adult Education, is that first, unlike other secondary grammar schools we focus on teaching Roma students and second, we employ approaches of reform pedagogy in our everyday work (Waldorf, Freinet, Mahatma Phule, Paolo Freire). For more information about our work please see: _______­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­_____________________________

Our organization is entitled to host volunteers. If you would like to join our team, you can participate in the following activities: tasks related to preparation, data collection, administration, coordination, organization, communication, service or art falling into the scope of activities defined in the statutes of the Jai Bhim Network.

How do we operate?

Categorized: Uncategorized   

Due to our constant success, more and more people get into contact with us. Many of them ask: how do we operate?

The first thing an outside observer notices is that while in other secondary grammar schools one cannot see Roma students, one can see at our school. It is also usually noted that approaches of reform pedagogy appear in our everyday work (Waldorf, Freinet, Mahatma Phule, Paolo Freire).

The founder of the Dr. Ámbédkar Secondary Grammar School, Vocational School and Elementary School for Adult Education is the Jai Bhim Network. The founder is an ecclesiastical organization, the school is ideologically committed. However, this commitment is not very similar to what we know from other church schools: e.g. there is no compulsory religious instruction.

Our Inspiration 1st Part

Our Inspiration (1st Part)
Jai Bhim is a cheerful greeting. Ten million Indians greet each other in this manner. They're the Dalits who are a proud community. They inherited an extremely difficult life. Their parents and grandparents and untold generations before them were outcasts in society. Even today they still encounter prejudice and experience helplessness.
For more than a millenium their ancestors lived as outcasts. People had a horror of touching them. Others even avoided being in their proximity as their shadow was considered polluting. If they went to school they were seated separately, If they were able to obtain work they did the dirtiest and lowest paid jobs.

Our Inspiration 2nd Part

Our Inspiration (2nd Part)
With their greeting of Jai Bhim they remind each other of their own successful revolution in 1956 for their human rights. Their cause is sacred. It inspires us here in Hungary, as we also face segregation and prejudice today. We would like to know discrimination is a thing of the past.
The dalit's story is like a fairy tale.

Our Inspiration 3rd Part

Our Inspiration (3rd Part)
Once upon a time, a hundred years ago, there lived a seventeen year old untouchable boy in a big family, His name was Bhim. He was the youngest child among 14 siblings. He surpassed all of them because of his brilliant mind. A wealthy maharaj acknowledged his poverty and bestowed a scholarship on him. Bhim was aware that Indian schools were being discriminatory and practiced segregation. Therefore, he tried his fortune in London and New York where he achieved university degrees. He received the title Dr. Ambedkar when he returned home to serve his people as a barrister.

Our Inspiration 4th Part

Our Inspiration (4th Part)
Nevertheless, he was considered as an untouchable in accordance with the holy books of the Hindu religion. Therefore, he convened with his friends and publicly burned Manu's Laws, the Hindu holy script which bids the Hindu to hold the Untouchable in disdain. He became a human right fighter and his authority was constantly growing throughout the whole country. When India gained independence in 1947 he was nominated as law minister. He was entrusted with drafting the Constitution for the country. He wrote in it that discrimination is forbidden.

Our Inspiration 5th Part

Our Inspiration (5th Part)
In his old age the Dalit people addressed him with veneration as Dr. Babasaheb. He and his laws, however respected they were, he still stared frustratedly at the discrimination existing all over the country. He decided then to show the people a spiritual alternative. As our judgment is determined by our faith, he took an oath: "I was born a Hindu Untouchable. It was beyond my power to prevent that but I declare that it is within my power to refuse to live under ignoble and humiliating conditions. I solemnly assure you that I will not die a Hindu". He abjured hindu religion that had brought so much suffering and humiliation to the Untouchable people (today's Dalits).

Our Inspiration 6th Part

Our Inspiration (6th Part)
He studied thoroughly all the faiths of the world. He was seeking a religion which fitted together with reason, with modern science, and which declared liberty, fraternity and equality amongst people. He decided to follow the path of the Indian prince who lived 2500 years ago: he would be a follower of the Buddha. This was a decision of profound importance for the Dalits because the Buddha is venerated thoughout the world, and India is entitled to take pride in her great son. Dr. Ambedkar showed his astuteness: all of us can choose the way to be respected, we can change our fate for the better. Hundreds of thousands followed Ambedkar to the magnificent ceremony in Nagpur in October 1956. This was the rebirth of Buddhism in India. Babasaheb died six weeks later.

Our Inspiration 7th Part

Our Inspiration (7th Part)
Those who at that time embraced a new world view with him, they are today grandfathers and grandmothers. Their grandchildren are as numerous as the whole population of Hungary. They follow Ambedkar's example: they face even the biggest difficulties in all things - to study and to exercise their human rights.
