NEXT DOOR FAMILY 2019

Project realization: January 2019 – December 2019

Are you interested in the fates of people from different cultures and how do they live in the Czech Republic? Are you a foreigner in the Czech Republic looking for a way to meet local families? Then you will certainly be interested in the original project Family Next Door. Whether you are the first or the second case, note the date on your calendar

 

SUNDAY 24 NOVEMBER 2019 AT 1pm

The basic pillar of the project is a common lunch, which always consists of two families - a family of foreigners from third countries and a Czech family. Its first year took place in 2004, since this project has been implemented and has promoted the idea that food and dining are one of the best and most enjoyable ways of establishing relationships. Since the beginning of the project, an unbelievable 1614 families, approximately 4400 people, have met at lunch together in this way.

 

Family meetings will take the form of lunch, when one family prepares lunch for the yet other unknown family, it will host them in their home in the presence of an assistant. He personally contacts both families before the meeting and gives them information about the other family and about the course of the meeting. If necessary, he should also help break the initial barriers and shame at the meeting itself.

 

It is well known that food facilitates networking and it is a natural way for social interaction. The idea behind the project is to make it easier for Czechs and foreigners to meet each other and start relationships, and the famliy environment of the lunches helps with this. Participants of unusual lunches have the opportunity to taste traditional specialties, to talk about culture, traditions, life, but above all to get to know each other.We consider the optimal result to be the relationships between the families that will last long after the lunch is over.

 

During this year´s 16th edition, 30 Czech families and 30 foreign families will meet for a Sunday lunch.

 

Do you also want to experience a special Sunday lunch?

The Next Door Family project has expanded abroad and since 2012, meetings have taken place in Portugal, Spain, Italy, Malta, Slovakia, Hungary, Belgium, and Cape Verde. This shows that our idea travels across borders as an effective and unusual tool for the integration of foreigners.

 DON’T BE AFRAID, ASK

The newly created 6-part humor-educational talk show, led by comedian Tigran Hovakimyan, brings viewers from the general public closer to the culture of selected participants in the spirit of “everything you wanted to know but were afraid to ask”.

 

1st episode of the show Don't be afraid, ask is about the Kazakhs and you can watch it here:

 

 

JOINED MEETINGS

This year, you can look forward to joint meetings of families that have participated in the project in recent years. This activity is based on the feedback and wishes received from participants to discuss their personal impressions and experiences. The meetings will take place in autumn 2019 in the Vysočina region, Olomouc region, and Moravian-Silesian region. A cultural program with, for example, a food tasting of traditional dishes, will be prepared during these meetings with the aim to have families share experiences, impressions, and similar ideas of activities on the integration of foreigners.

O nás

Slovo 21 z.s. je nevládní nezisková organizace, která začala působit v Praze roku 1999. Naše práce by se dala rozdělit do dvou hlavních větví – aktivity, které se snaží celkově zlepšit postavení Romů v Česku a ty, které se zaměřují na cizince ze třetích států.

Vznik organizace je spjat především s počátky Světového romského festivalu Khamoro - ostatně ten je dodnes nejznámějším projektem Slova 21. Asi nejznámějším cizineckým integračním projektem je neformální setkávání českých a migrantských rodin Rodina Odvedle, bulletin Slovo pro cizince a o cizincích a projekt Víjejte v ČR. 

Slovo 21 je od počátku organizací, která chce přispět k budování multikulturní společnosti a především k lepšímu soužití kultur nejen v Česku, ale i v Evropě. Slovo 21 neposkytuje sociální služby jako takové. Naší filozofií je aktivovat Romy i cizince a naučit je, jak vybojovat a prosadit svá lidská práva. Zároveň se snažíme bourat zakořeněné předsudky, které lidem jen komplikují život. Bojujeme proti rasismu a xenofobii, snažíme se ochraňovat lidská práva a rozvíjet jejich dodržování a zlepšujeme mediální obraz menšin.

Who are we?

Slovo 21 NGO is a non-governmental non-profit organization, which was established in the year 1999. We have Czechs, Roma and members from various continents working for us. Our work can be divided into two main branches - activities to support the Roma, and activities focusing on foreigners.

Since the beginning, we are an organization which aims at building a multicultural society and mainly at a better coexistence of cultures not only in the Czech Republic, but in Europe in general. Our organization does not offer social services as such. Our philosophy is to activate the Roma and foreigners and to teach them how to fight and stand up for their human rights. Our goal is also to destroy the deeply rooted prejudices, which tend to complicate the lives of many.
