Volunteering at the Zavod Pod Strehco – a canteen providing meals for socially disadvantaged people in Ljubljana

Zavod Pod strehco


Activity

The institution »Pod strehco« (Under the roof) on Zaloška street 42, in Ljubljana represents a contemporary, but a warm, humane and friendly solution for the citizens of Ljubljana who found themselves in social, medical or age-related distress. The work of the institute is based on providing vital daily meals and programs of integration of citizens into the society. Within the institute's activities, there is a canteen, which daily provides up to 400 warm meals. Volunteers are also in charge of collecting surpluses of food provided by the merchants. In addition to the food, the institution also provides a range of educational programs for building a better personality and self-esteem, as well as the possibility of social events and gatherings.

With your help, we strive for our citizens to be more active and involved in the functioning of our country. We strongly believe that this is the only way for our society to be successful. Our guests are invited to join the volunteers in selflessly offering help – for just half of a working day. The volunteers daily help the institution to help those who have found themselves in distress, many times not by their fault, and from which they do not see a way out. The experience of helping offers a multifaceted therapeutic effect, especially inner satisfaction, the volunteering experience, teamwork focused directly on other people, etc. Impact tourism thus enables us to co-create a better and more beautiful world in a pleasant way.
