allison's message
"My Hungarian heritage had long been a source of pride and an integral piece of who I was as a young American who, like so many others, comes from a diverse and eclectic family background. I felt my heritage when I looked at the pictures of my immigrant ancestors, heard the foreign words my relatives would mutter, and saw pictures of the rural place from where the Patakis originally came." (By our Ambassador, Allison Pataki)

Thirty lucky participants went on two overlapping trips this July. The program enjoyed huge media attention again this year; you can check it out in our Video Gallery, or read a translation of participant Owen Pataki’s particularly insightful interview in Heti Válasz.

Applications for the 2016 trip will open in December 2015!

Sponsors, supporters and partners make these journeys possible, so check them out and spread the word about supporting ReConnect Hungary!
