Rozália Csáki

executiv director

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.

Attila Péter

project manager

Bringing a community affair into action is like a snowball we start on the top of the slope. It is accompanied by the helpfulness of enthusiastic companions, the donation of good-willed people and the power of encouraging words. And at the bottom of the hill, it turns into a ball that no one could have been done by himself.

communication responsible

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.

István Már


The digital era is slowly but steadily puts some pressure on the effectiveness and opportunities of our everyday civil work. It cannot be circumvented, but only to evolve with the challenges of the ‘electronic dimension’. My current task is to develop the digital version of the “Community Card” program at the level of Romania and Central-Eastern Europe. The task is “coloring” and completing my knowledge and experience that I have done over the past few years.

Rita Kolumbán

fundraising manager

Living in the community is a basic human need. It is my privilege to work for a strong community. I have heard a lot about the saying “One needs time for good work”. And I truly think that the team is what you really need in order to do a really good job. My experience so far shows that where there is a team that is willing to do it, everything can be done there. With this attitude I am a member of the SZKA team.

Eszter Toth

co-organizer of the Run FOR IT! event

DESIRE meets OPPORTUNITY: for me, this is what being the co-organizer of the Run FOR IT! event means.
In the last two years I’ve followed Attila’s work with attention and helped him with devotion. Because of him and our successful collaboration, I’ve become an enthusiastic member of the SZKA team and this year I am fully involved in the organization of the Run FOR IT! event.
It is a great honor and pleasure to use my ability and love of organizing, for a good and noble cause, like helping others realize their dreams, plans and goals!
This year let’s Run FOR IT together!

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.
