Give Hope Receive a Smile

Main aim of the charity

The main aim is to integrate homeless people in society, to help them and encourage them to find their way.

How the employee got involved and why

It started about a year ago. Every day on my way home I saw the poor homeless people at the train station. In one evening we get together with my friends and we started to talk about how we can help those people, how we can offer hope...

What work does the employee do for charity?

At the beginning we cooked in our homes. Everyone was involved in some activities , some of us were making the tea, and some of us the plates. In present, after we shared our story with friends, they decide to help us financial, so now we afford to order 30 menus from a restaurant.

What impact would winning have on the charity?

We want to buy a big camper van and to equip it with a kitchen, a washing/drying machine, and a shower so we can take some homeless people every week to offer them a shower, a haircut, and to encourage them to find a job. Or we want to rent a space with a kitchen, a bath, washing/drying machine where we can do all this activities.

What impact would winning have on the employee?

They don’t have a place where they can take a shower or to wash their clothes. Hygiene is the most common issue. Local Authorities do not help to integrate these kind of people in society. Our future vision is to give them emotional and psychical support, and encourage them to find a job. To win this competition, will make us happy , because with every implemented resource we receive smiles.
