Founders motivation for the establishment of Foundation Ambar

It is strange, that for the same work, someone can earn in an hour what somebody a few miles away earns for the whole day.

During my 6-month stay in Belgrade in 2008, I regularly went to the store of painting materials in Rajićva Ulica, where each time I boutht material worth about 100 francs. There I saw artist colleagues who, for 2 francs, bought a paper and a pencil.
