This diverse organization has been helping women in crisis and people with disabilities since 1998. In addition to providing accommodation for mothers – victims of domestic violence and their children, this non-profit unit has in its portfolio a few protected shelters. It also set up and operates an emergency telephone line, giving immediate help to those in need. Áno pre život also runs a community consultancy centre.
Foundation Granvia grant allowed the implementation of a project aimed at improving the protected shelter – which serves as a gift shop and a patisserie, called Darčeky@káva.
Apart from employing individuals with severe disabilities, the store assortment is made by people in crisis, whether they are long-term unemployed or those with a medical condition. This way, they involve them in the work process and further allow them in the work process and further allow them to compete on the labour market. While all the pastries are produced in a protected shelter, the gifts range from hand-made fabric dolls, paintings to jewellery. The shop is particularly popular with the visitors touring this charming little spa town.
