163 students participated in the fourth edition of the "Give a Heart" challenge

On 24 November 2023, the Olga Havel Foundation - Committee of Good Will awarded 11 teams that took part in the 4th annual student challenge "Give a Heart" and proposed how to specifically support a selected non-profit organization in their area. The challenge involved 33 student teams and a total of 163 students from across the country.

The students received financial support of up to CZK 20 000 for "their" organization, demonstrating their readiness to engage in civil society activities and help those in need. The awards were presented by Zdeněk Tůma, a member of the Foundation's Supervisory Board, and Monika Granja, its director.

Part of the festive afternoon was a discussion between students and Ondřej Hrubeš from the Scout Institute in Prague, coordinator of the "Dare" project, and Monika Granja, director of our foundation, entitled "Young people tune civil society".

We would like to thank all of you who actively participated in the 4th edition of the challange "Give a Heart"!
