In cooperation with Hajléktalanokért Foundation we organized to a very unusual walk as a CSR project of ours:
THE NIGHT OF THE HOMELESS PEOPLE - PARALLEL UNIVERSE IN THE CITY
In this walk, we got to know closer the world of people living in the streets - there is a parallel universe inside the fancy 5th district, among the bank buildings, antique and contemporary art galleries. It was a socio-cultural walk - and we had some 'experts' on the topic with us: Apart from a guide, the social workers of the Foundation accompanied us explaining the aspects of their work.
It was not an easy walk to organize and it is a topic which many people are not willing to get on touch with. We wanted to fund and organize this walk in any case since we consider it an important role for us to show locals not only the beautiful hidden parts of Budapest but also more 'real' hidden worlds.
We found the pariticipants very interested and open to get to know this world better. A few voluntary homeless also joined the walk and everyone were eager to ask from them.
The people who came found the experience very unique and encouraged us to organize further similair events. We are thinking to do so.
2 hour long guided walk with an underguide, and social workers.
Collecting donation for the foundation.
