TEDxBratislava - Vladislava Dolníková - on bringing up future Romany leaders

The founder and director of the Div? maky (Wild Poppies) Foundation. An enthusiastic supporter of talented Romany children -- potential future community leaders. In her TEDxBratislava talk she talks about a program the long-term goal of which is to create an environment for the development of Romany elite and middle class, currently practically non-existent. What she and her collaborators weaved into the program is trust -- trust that the children from Div? maky would one day become great artist, teachers, intellectuals or athletes, capable of overcoming every obstacle, trust in children, donors, partners and trust in self. Unexpected effect of is that originally anonymous donors get to know the sponsored children and build up a relationship that often grows into friendship. This opens the door for understanding, which has mutual effect -- children have one more reason to make effort and donors have reasons to be proud.

These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.
