People in Need aims at raising awareness in Czech society on issues such as poverty, development cooperation, migration, and human rights violations. We strive to reduce racial and national prejudices and xenophobia in the Czech Republic. The means we employ to achieve these aims are our educational and awareness programmes.

The Migration programme focuses on presentation of migration-related topics in the media and public space. In the education sector we work with university and technical college students from journalism and media studies departments, and also with journalists and entire editorial teams who are provided informational and methodological support for their work on the topic, including arranging contacts. In cooperation with Variants and One World at Schools, we hold seminars at primary and secondary schools on the subject of migration and the media. The Migration programme was initiated in 2002 and in 2012 became part of the Variants programme.More information
