The Foundation „Normal Prospects”
The Foundation „Normal Prospects” is run by disabled students. The aim of the Foundation is to make young disabled people actively participate in the society. Our activity focuses on supporting disabled people in starting their professional career, i. e. in finding a flat and job. Disabled graduates usually do not have enough financial means to provide their personal contribution required while applying for housing credits. Therefore, the Foundation raises funds to subsidize housing loans for disabled students, provides disabled people with housing space and cooperates with the institutions granting such loans. Another aim of the Foundation is to enable disabled people to take up an occupation. This activity is aimed at, among other things, arranging for meetings of potential employers with disabled people and cooperating with other organizations, as far as occupational training of disabled people is concerned. The Foundation also provides psychological assistance for people with disabilities.
