Great city, great experience and even greater help
Description: The Práh Association helps mentally ill adults from South Moravia region and supports them in their inclusion in the everyday life. It helps its clients with problems in all basic matters such as work, independent living, education, health care, interpersonal, family and partner relationships, leisure time activities, etc. Besides this, the Association contributes on demanding fulfilling of the ill people rights and tries to improve the public view on people suffering from this illness.
Type of Work: During previous projects, we started building a mosaic in Práh, and this year we will finish it. Then, we will paint a fence, make a stage from clay, clean windows and hopefully create a new vermicompost. After all this work we will take a trip around Brno, see Špilberk castle or swim in the local dam and experience the summer cinema in the garden!
Study Theme: The community of Práh offers an alternative to psychiatric hospitals, and in contrast to them creates an environment where mentally disabled can establish friendly relationships with their assistants, develop their skills and to some extent gain independence. Coming here is a unique chance to experience life in such a community, work and spend free time with the people and learn something about social inclusion. Moreover, you will discover the beautiful countryside of South Moravia and the second biggest city in the Czech Republic.
Accommodation: We will sleep and will have a “base” in a room which belongs to a daycare center. You will definitely need a sleeping bag and a sleeping pad.
Language: The language spoken in the Czech Republic is Czech, but we do not expect you to know it! English will be the language of the workcamp, and we will teach basic words in Czech at the beginning, since most local people do not speak English. But do not worry, the people of Práh are very friendly and easy-going!
Requirements: Open mind and willingness to spend the whole workcamp together with the community. You will work, cook or make trips together.
Approximate Location: The Association is located directly in Brno. Address is: Tuřanská 12, 620 00 Brno
