Interchange in the Czech Republic becomes a partner of the People in Need organisation in order to support disadvantaged children in the framework of a public collection

Interchange Czech Republic agreed to support a public collection that helps children living in the Czech Republic in difficult conditions and with a limited education. These children are being helped by the organization ‘People in Need’, which in addition to its many other activities, has implemented programs aimed at social integration, especially in the education of these disadvantaged children.

Interchange, through its partnership with People in Need, has offered to extend the charity’s ability to raise funds, through the installation of eight new collection boxes at its exchange offices. The boxes were installed at the end of March in the Interchange exchange offices at Prague Airport. The Company believes that placing collection boxes in its offices at the airport, where it is dealing with that the exchange of cash in an attractive and widely frequented area, will contribute significantly to the increase in the amount of money raised by the charity. People in Need is also a long-term partner of Prague Airport, which has been supporting the activities of the organization since 2009 and the collection at the Interchange exchange offices will significantly expand the support that People in Need is receiving at the airport.

The money raised by Interchange will support, in particular, the fundraising campaign “A Better School for All”. Talking about this, Marek Nácovský, the Country Manager for Interchange in the Czech Republic, said:

“I am very happy that we are able to support a public collection that seeks to ensure a regular supply of funds for the education of children who do not have a stable and functional family background. We consider the educational programs of the People in Need charity, especially the services that it provides in order to tutor disadvantaged children, to be extremely important and we hope that, thanks to our partnership, the collection will be able to involve even more children. ”

Just now, People in Need provides tutoring for about 500 children right across the country. The tutoring takes place in families individually or in groups. Children are especially tutored in subjects that they find difficult, and parents are encouraged to supervise the children and ensure that they do their homework. This has proved to be a very efficient service, as it involves not only the child itself, but also the parents and teachers.
