They have no homes yet wish to contribute to society. What links the organisations Kuchařky bez domova (The Homeless Cooks), Pragulic (Prague Street) and Přestupní stanice (Transfer Station)? They are places that transform lives, providing people without homes with jobs and support. Come and learn about the origins of these innovative projects that bring those with nowhere to live back into society, highlight the issue of homelessness, combat prejudice and bring those without and with homes together.
Guests: Eva Dudová, founder of Přestupní stanice, Magdalena Hrdličková from the projects Jako doma (Help Yourself) and Jídelnu Kuchařek bez domova (Homeless Cooks Canteen), and Roman, a guide with the Pragulic organisation.
The evening will begin with a presentation of the results of a nationwide census of the homeless by Petr Holpuch, a sociologist with the Research Institute for Labour and Social Affairs.
Martin Churavý will moderate.
Organised by the Committee of Good Will – Olga Havlová Foundation in cooperation with the Václav Havel Library.
