Prague

Our community initiatives span pro bono work, volunteering in the community and charitable donations through the Clifford Chance Foundation

Children's Home in Kašperské Hory

In 2007 we started to work with the children's home in Kašperské Hory for children up to the age of 18, and we have been visiting ever since. We visit the children for one weekend every two months to play and interact with them, and we always plan various activities. Our weekend visits are warmly welcomed by the children and the staff.

Člověk v tísni, o.p.s. (People in Need)

Clifford Chance Prague supports the 'Promoting Education in Families' programme which focuses on boosting the motivation of children from socially disadvantaged families to study and successfully complete higher education. Higher education is essential for success on the labour market and the long-term employment prospects of participants in the programme. CC's support is primarily directed at volunteers, enabling them to organise tutoring. The firm also provides assistance to children and young people.

The Clifford Chance Foundation grant allows the People in Need organisation (Člověk v Tísni) to employ a part-time coordinator of educational activities who organises volunteers at the Prague branch, on an annual contract. The target group of clients of the local branch are socially disadvantaged families, individuals, and children living in Prague. 

PINK CROCODILE, o.p.s.

Established in 2013, Pink Crocodile School provides quality education, services and an extensive integration programme for children with severe combined disabilities. Pink Crocodile School is an educational centre and school officially registered with the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic and the Prague City Hall and has received an above-average rating from the Czech School Inspectorate. Pink Crocodile School's target group is children with very severe combined disabilities, who would be difficult to place in the existing network of special schools in the Czech Republic. The centre was created following a decade of experience in organising an educational programme intended for such children, and was also inspired by educational programmes targeted at these children, running in EU countries and the USA, and through which Pink Crocodile School employees gained previous work experience.

Clifford Chance annually contributes to the operation of Pink Crocodile and provides assistance to children with severe disabilities, not only by means of donations, but also through pro-bono legal advice supervised by our partner, Emil Holub.
