The Bubamara Association in Vinkovici a town not for from Osijek is doing something not many people have never thought of doing. They are doing a crowd funding campaign that kicked off this past week. It is a real big positive change for people with Down Syndrome.This will be the first ever Café bar in Croatia with a goal is to employ people Down Syndrome.
The target is to be able to raise 10,000 USD to make Buba Bar a reality to employ people with disabilities. This will give young adults with disabilities to feel more part of society and to live like everyone else that has a job.
From the crowd Funding page they have mentioned the reasons why:
1) The administration of Vinkovci has recognised the potential of this social entrepreneurship project. They gave us to use for the bar a in the city center, but it needs adaptation.
2) For that, as a non-profit organization, we cannot ensure funds needed. We need your help to raise 10.000 $ and enable “Buba bar” to work’’
3) This money will be invested in space arrangement and furnishing. The Bar will be completely adapted for people with disabilities and the pleasant ambience will be useful for wider local community, providing the possibility for spending some quality time and common activities.
