Civil society organisation D.R.A.K., z.s. provides social services since 2003.
Its activity is founded on these values: home, family, activity, communication. These values are also reflected in our name, D.R.A.K, composed from first letters of the respective Czech terms.
We are proud to base our approach on respect for human uniqueness.
Civil society organisation D.R.A.K. z.s. was founded in 2003 by people who found themselves in difficult conditions of life. Some of them became parents to a child with a physical disability, others were forced to manage the consequences of their own disability They have been enriched by the way they have managed this experience or impulse and this encouraged them to help others who faced similar difficulties.
The activities of the organization are focused mainly on 3 target groups:
