The paper presents the activity of the Jai Bhim Network in Hungary, a unique Buddhist religious organization that operates the Dr Ámbédkar School in the village of Sajókaza. The school’s main goal is to help the local Roma community to get out of the despairing situation of poverty and segregation by providing a tailor-made school and help to rebuild community cohesion on both their own tradition and the new values of Buddhism.
