The 92/B Furj street estate has been run by the DMGYIA (the Foundation for Children and Youth of Southern Hungary) since 1st of April, 1996. In the light of the economic changes that have occured lately our intentions are the following:
In order to be clean for both foreign and Hungarian people three basic ideas are brought together in our name:
Our Goal is
to work as a multipurpose, receptive institution that helps with the development of Szeged where the innovative business centre, the holiday-centre which is tightly connected with the garden city and the youth services work together in harmony without dis turbing each other functionally.
The inner management given by the enterprise developing centre is such a pillar that ensures self-support based functioning independently of season and a permanent source for the necessary protection of substance by common marketing-, secretarial- and oth er services.
On the basis of functioning as a foundation we are strongly connected with non-profit sphere. We would like to ensure a permanent locale for the programmes of youth associations, religious organisations and other ones based on different interests and we w ant to incite them to improve the environmental culture of the Park. We would like to assign a prominent part to our co-operation with the local government of Szeged Town of County Rank. We would like to contribute to the improvement of enterprise develop ing, manpower-utilization and to the lifting of the living standard in Ujszeged. On the basis of business interests we would like to co-operate as a market character with the participants of economic life who are ready to enrich the existing values of the Park.
The park possessing comperatively favourable fundamentals is suitable to arouse the attention of foreign visitors and urge them support it. Next to this we want to enlarge our sources by taking part in technical, innovative and classical competitions to a ccomplish new investments that fit our conception. Our goal- to estabilish and support a social and common initiative which is free of politics -laid down in the Deed of Foundation and that can serve the active formation of the future of South Hungarian y outh can be realised as a result of these things.
