Miroslav Dušánek Fund
The family of Miroslav Dušánek, a blind person who managed to live a well-rounded life despite his handicap, decided to honour his memory by establishing a charitable fund. Financial means will be annually distributed from the Miroslav Dušánek Fund to support visually impaired people.

Katka started to work at the Foundation after she graduated from Masaryk University in Brno, in September 2003. Since then, she has been attending to our donors and taking care of the Foundation's good name. What does she enjoy about her work? “I studied social work, economics, and social policy, and I could not imagine a job where all these disciplines would be combined in such an ideal way until I assumed the donor relationships manager position. It is an amazing adventure which I have been sharing with excellent people around me, be they colleagues or donors. :o)"

Petr joined the ranks of the Foundation's team at the beginning of 2004, having already gained experience in the NGO sector both in the Czech Republic and abroad. In his position, he is especially responsible for the grant programmes of the Foundation and the Programme of Support for the NGO Sector. He says that he likes working with representatives of NGOs, but, in light of the number of annually supported projects, unfortunately he doesn't have as much time for them as he might wish. Although he does not excuse any missing paperwork (which is so unpopular) related to the implementation and statement of costs of supported projects, he makes efforts to draw on what is positive in the administrative profession and to maintain sound judgement, realistic sensibility, and a human approach.
