Our Staff

Csáki Rozália

Rozália Csáki

executiv director
rozi@szka.org

I believe in the power of community and society. At the same time – according to Áron Tamasi – ”We are here in this world to be home.” For me odorhei is the HOME. I’d like if the Community Foundation would promote positive and creative changes in our region; so I associate active people, encourage and help them, to the best of my knowledge.

Eszter Toth

responsible for grantmaking

I feel lucky to be part of the first Run For IT! as a co-organizer. This way I could put the love of organization at the service of such a noble goal as the realization of other’s dreams and goals. At the same time, my own dream came true: being able to do something effective for the environment: good people + good heart + good wibes = creating good things, value. This result was proved by the successful implementations.

communication responsible
bernadett@szka.org

In my opinion, to communicate and to make contact with the community are essential to a community foundation. Through communication relationships can work and can be maintained. As a communications responsible, I believe it is important for the Foundation and its environment to provide proper and quality information, and to establish and maintain a relationship of trust. At the same time, the purpose of communication is also to inform and provide insight about the activities of the Foundation, which serve the interests of our community.

I like my job because it motivates me in my everyday life.
It fills me up to see how the project I have thought of will bring tangible benefits to the community of Odorheiu Secuiesc.

Publications

Udvarhely County Mosaic

The Udvarhely County Mosaic publication is more than a photo album, it`s a book about our community and our region. This book was born out of a photo competition, which reveals the community of Odorheiu Secuiesc, accompanied by interesting stories from the site.

With the walking stick through Odorhei

We developed a cultural program aimed to show a less known face of our little town to inhabitants and tourists alike. Every city is full of memories, of human destinies, untold stories, which are shared with you by the guides of our tours, all of them local historians.
