Aims and Activities

Our main objective is to establish effective support systems and systematic solutions for homeless and disabled people, for elderly citizens and for any other marginalized social groups that are at the risk of social exclusion. We want to achieve that by promoting behaviors that minimize the social inequalities.

We want to make people’s lives better. Especially those of the less fortunate ones. We pursue projects such as “Teatr Forum” and “Human Library” and through social intervention; we are working on strengthening socially weak individuals.

We do not have a specific workshop space but rather co-operate with other organizations and institutions. We do not give out food or clothing – we help people regain dignity and control of their life. We do not tell people how to live their life – but simply discuss it with them and together we ponder on the sense of this world.
