PTH's visit to Hungary... the round-up: all 12 blogposts in one place!

Rob, Lynn, and Brandon from PTH -- along with our friend James from the Bay Area -- visited Hungary in August.  Folks there fundraised to bring PTH over, to meet and share wisdom and build with homeless people, social workers and activists there.

One more personal reflection on our work in Hungary

* LYNN:  How to summarize our trip to Hungary? In a few words: powerful, transformative, affirming, cozy, challenging, fun, exhausting, gratifying. Working backwards, I'll share the most wonderful news: There have been 2 follow-up meetings of The City Belongs To Everyone -- and all of the homeless folks who came to our trainings attended (except 2 who had checked-in ahead of time).

Two personal reflections on our work in Hungary last month

 BRANDON: Budapest, Hungary -- How do I summarize? Well, it seems to me that poverty looks about the same just about any place in the world that you go. Whether it’s from the result of the collapse of a socialist state, or the free market ideology present within our current global economy, conditions of the have-nots are quite similar.
