Daklozenkrant (street paper)
Every big city struggles with people living on the street. Municipalities and welfare organizations try to help these people, but it is difficult to provide an airtight system and to end homelessness completely. For people that are down on their luck and became homeless, there’s street newspaper Z!. This papier tries to empower Amsterdam’s homeless. These people can buy a stack of papers for a small prize and sell them as an independent entrepreneur. For more than 20 years, thousands of people accepted this form of aid and improved their lives because of it.
At Royal Coster, we believe in the story of the learning a man how to fish instead of buying a fish for him. Empowerment is something we think highly of. Therefore, we support Z!, it’s positive look on the world and contribute to the creation and distribution of the newspaper.
