Lunch at Le Chalet and Big Band Memory concert for Stëmm vun der Strooss

On Thursday 27 July, the doors of the social canteens of Stëmm vun der Strooss remained closed. The reason for this unusual closing was the traditional annual summer excursion organized by Stëmm, in which 101 people in need participated. 64 people from Esch-sur-Alzette and its surroundings went to discover Saarburg in Germany, while a group of 37 who usually eat at the canteen at 7, rue de la Fonderie in Hollerich instead visited the Roman villa of Borg in Germany, had a picnic on the banks of the Remerchen ponds and took a bike ride along the Moselle. "When I was 18, I did cyclo-cross (cross-country racing on bikes). So today, to be able to cycle from Remerschen to Stadtbredimus, reminded me a bit of the past. I would like to buy a bike, but unfortunately I can’t afford it," said Steve, who has just started working at the Stëmm’s Caddy service after spending four years receiving psychiatric support following severe depression. "When they left my restaurant, they looked happy. I wanted to please them, and they gave me so much in return."

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;

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
