McDaniel College Budapest and MigHelp, an NGO dedicated to helping refugees and disadvantaged migrants make the transition to life in Hungary, collaborated for the first time last fall in order to offer a computer course aimed at providing basic skills for a group of twelve. Teaching the course was McDaniel College Budapest web design professor Gergely Viczian; supervising it for MigHelp was its founder, James Peter. Three McDaniel College Budapest undergraduates—Ali Dowlaty, Fahimeh Tehrani, and Nazanin Azizian, served as teaching assistants. The course was a success, producing a new website, and twelve students received certificates of completion in December. And the story is not over: the Erste Foundation, supporting social development throughout central and southeastern Europe, has agreed to support a second semester addition to the course.
