Stëmm vun der Strooss discovering the zoo of Amnéville

On Thursday 2nd of August, as for the past 19 years, the Stëmm vun der Strooss organized its traditional summer trip. From 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., the Amneville Zoo served as a recreational and discovery framework for 90 people, including many children and persons with reduced mobility. It was on board of the three buses booked for the event by the Stëmm, that participants, with their lunch package including food and beverages, took the road under the guidance of 7 social workers led by Director Alexandra Oxacelay. At the same time, a group of 60 disadvantaged people went to Esch-sur-Alzette to visit the Han caves. The journey took place in a good atmosphere. The conversations went well. It must be said that this was the first visit of a zoo for the majority of people present.

Who are we?

Founded in 1996, the Stëmm vun der Stross (which literally translates to ‘Voice of the Street’) encourages the social and professional integration of underprivileged but also discriminated individuals. Appointed and concerted by the health minister, the non-profit association collaborates with the Luxembourgish Red Cross. The headquarters are located in the capital city, Luxembourg. In 2004, the city of Esch-sur-Alzette additionally offered premises, which enabled the establishment of a second restaurant. Furthermore, the workshop for social reintegration called Schweesdreps is also located in the second-largest city of Luxembourg. During the year of 2014, the Stëmm vun der Stross was able to open new branches in Hollerich, Schoenfels, Tétange and Belvaux. The association mainly supports people who are homeless, unemployed, living on a minimum wage, ex-criminals, asylum seekers, immigrants and people who suffer from addictions such as alcoholism, drugs and medication.

We work for the social and professional integration of the disadvantaged people.

In 2016 Stemm vun der Stross enabled:

  • 71 420 served meals in the social restaurant of Hollerich and 28 710 served meals in the second premise in Esch-sur-Alzette, which is a total of 100 130 served meals (+36,7%);

Testimonials

‘I had come to join the Stëmm through another friend. I had been working for a bank most of my life and told myself that I would want to do something different in my retirement, mainly as a volunteer. All my colleagues have been skeptical towards my work at the Stëmm. My loved ones, however, have been very supportive. The first time I started here, I did not know how people would react. I thought that they might be aggressive. But that was not the case at all. Nobody really knew my role. ‘Oh hey, the new guy!’’ Nobody knew that I was in fact a volunteer. Now, I have simply become one of them.’
Nico, 67
