The organisation’s objective is to bring like-minded people together to provide humanitarian services in the spirit of friendship and international collaboration. They unite individuals from many nations, including expatriates who live in Prague, as well as Czech members who have had international experience in their lives. Their project for youngsters from the SOS Children’s Villages International aims at empowering underprivileged youngsters.
Currently, RCPI operates in 5 countries including Kosovo, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, North Macedonia and the Czech Republic. They operate with 7 volunteers and focus on education, personal, and professional development.
As always, we welcome their comment on why they decided to join the KCS members’ network, in their own words:
What made you decide to join the KCS members’ network?
We want to make sure that our work with vulnerable youth is fully compliant with all the youth and child protection policies because we are working with a very specific group of youth that needs to be protected very well.
What is your key driver to implementing child safeguarding?
The most crucial priority is making sure that participants of our projects and programs will not be abused or harmed, and if there will be such a risk. We want to make sure that our policies protect them as much as possible.
Where do you think your organisation will be regarding child safeguarding in a year?
I think that the Speechless Reconciliation initiative in the year to come, and in the following years, will be trying to stay at the forefront of safeguarding youth and children and especially those vulnerable ones.
What message do you want to tell your staff, donors and the wider world?
Working with orphaned youth is working for a better future. Their biggest misfortune can also be very often their biggest motivation to succeed in their lives despite the setbacks. And we want to help them to redirect this potential in the right direction where their talents and capabilities can flourish and make the world and their community a better place.
