The “Youth House” in Dudelange collects 700 kg clothes for the Stëmm vun der Strooss

Very nice initiative from young people who are part of the "Youth House" of Dudelange: following their request and for the 3rd year in a row, a collection of clothes was organized to collect clothes that will then be given to the beneficiaries from the social restaurant of Stëmm vun der Strooss. Under the direction of Mr Marques, 25 young people, between 12 and 24 years old, organized this collection of clothes for the benefit of Stemm vun der Strooss. The advertising poster made for this occasion and the communication in the press have worked well : 700 kg of clothes have been collected between October 20th and November 17th, 2017. The delivery of the collected clothes to the Stemm vun der Stross a.s.b.l. was made on the beginning of december. It is expected that a group of young people will have lunch at Hollerich's social restaurant during the carnival holidays, in order to interact with Stemm volunteers and beneficiaries of the social restaurant. If you would also like to support disadvantaged people this winter, donations can be transferred to the Stëmm vun der Strooss account opened within BCEE : LU63 0019 2100 0888 3000. Donations are tax deductible.

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%);
  • 137 tons of free redistributed food products;
  • 575 medical consultations;
  • 249 individuals who are coached in our workshops of professional reintegration;
  • 230 re-accommodated individuals within the activity and offered service of Immo Stëmm;

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
