The greatest achievement of the European Union is the free flow of capital, labor, goods, and services, but the most important thing is the flow of knowledge, and this means not only intellectual knowledge, but also skills and craftsmanship, said János Csák, Minister of Culture and Innovation, in Târgu Secuiesc (Kézdivásárhely), Romania, on Thursday.
The latest stop of the Vocational Training without Borders program was held in the Szekler town, where certificates were awarded to participants in the painter and innkeeper training courses for the staff of the St. Francis of Deva Foundation.
In his speech, János Csák thanked Csaba Böjte, head of the St. Francis Foundation for saving the former Minorite monastery from destruction and “breathing life into it” with the help of the county and city leaders. He pointed out that
a dual vocational training course will be launched in the historic building,
which was renovated with the support of the Hungarian government, from autumn.
He stressed that the restored property is worthy of the St. Francis Foundation, which does not let go of its foster children even after they turn 18, but provides “spiritual, intellectual, and if necessary, financial support.”
