Workshop as a classroom
Association “Čep za hendikep“
The Association “Čep za hendikep“ emerged as a civic initiative launched by people with disabilities – users of mechanical and electrical equipment, in order to improve their own position. It started as a campaign, after which the association called “Čep za hendikep“ (Bottle caps for the handicapped) was founded in 2013. The association functions in such a way that citizens voluntarily collect caps of plastic bottles, which the association then sells to recyclers, and for the money received, they buy adequate new and used orthopedic equipment for persons with disabilities.
