They turned seven homeless people into Prague city guides

Pragulic

Three classmates from the Faculty of Humanities, Charles University in Prague, decided to try out social business. They came up with the idea of turning some of the Prague homeless people into city guides and got a financial support of 1,500 euro.

The idea of organizing tours around Prague led by people who had experience with life on the streets was born in March 2012. Supported by their friends and family, the Pragulic team decided to enter the Social Impact Awards 2012 competition which supports student projects in social business. In June 2012, Pragulic won the public voting and with it support for further development.

 

A year after its establishment, the Pragulic association Poznej Prahu jinak! offers Prague tours for general public. Every guide in the project has their own route which reflects their experience with life on the streets. The association also provides counseling and education services for the guides. It is necessary to book the tours in advance and pay for it at least one day before. Half of the admission fee goes directly to the guide.

 

There is a video showing the beginnings of the project in 2012 and a facebook page with up-to-date information.
