|In Hungary most children aged seven to fourteen lose their lives as a result of accidents that could have been prevented. United Way Hungary launched its own program in 2010 called the BiztiBusz, or Safety Bus, which draws on volunteer teachers to take the program to schools. The program is based on drama methods, transferring skills and knowledge in a fun and entertaining way so that children can live their daily lives in a consciously safe way.

|In Hungary, one in five children loses the chance to dream bigger, lagging behind due to weak reading and comprehension skills. United Way Hungary launched a literacy program KÖNYFORGATÓ in 2014 to promote reading and help children – especially those coming from disadvantaged families. Beneficiary partners are selected through a tender process and their experts make sure that the donated books are actively used in innovative programs supporting children in the development of their reading and comprehension skills.
