From August 7 to 13 the Sziget Festival was held in Budapest (Hungary). Our colleagues from SCI Hungary-Útilapu Hálózat were present at the NGO Island where 45 NGOs represented their work and projects.

A festival that since its first edition in 1993, the number of visitors increased thirteen times, just last year with more than 100,000 festival-goers.

20 local volunteers from Utilapu and MiraDoor joined to support the tent during the week. They developed a gender contest, some small workshops, games, activities to make pins and a love letter box for the guests.

 Some quotes from volunteers

"It was one of my best decisions to join Utilapu as a volunteer. I wanted to engage with the world and its challenges. By being an active citizen through volunteering I became the person who I always wanted to be when I was little", Petra, volunteer from Utilapu.

"Many people ask me what am I taking out of my volunteering experience. I always say that I dont know exactly, it just feels right to me", Dorina, volunteer from Utilapu.

"I got in touch with MiraDoor two months ago after my University teacher told me about the project. At this moment I am developing a website for them and I enjoy it a lot because the team is open to new ideas and I am feeling that my time is spend very useful", Karo, Volunter from MiraDoor.
