Who we are

We form the Etincelle group of social enterprises, which employs almost 200 people with health disabilities, especially intellectual ones.


We run cafes and bistros, have our own artisan bakery, several bakeries and a farm where we raise sheep, chickens, pigs, grow vegetables and herbs. 

In addition, we operate a laundry and clean the greenery and public spaces.

We are among the most important employers of people with health disabilities in the Czech Republic.

We are holders of the EY Socially Beneficial Entrepreneur of the Year 2018 award.

15 years on the road

For fifteen years, we have been working on a gradual change of perspective on the employment of people with disabilities. We educate, inform and pass on our experience.

We believe that where there is no obstacle, there is no handicap. That's why we decided to goa stepgave
and offer our experience to employers on the open labor market.

We help with the selection of employees with disabilities both in corporations and in small companies. We support both parties in gradual adaptation and break down barriers on the spot.

"From my own observation, I know very well that if you involve people with disabilities in the work process, they gain not only self-confidence, but mainly the meaning of everyday life. And that is exactly what every human being needs.”
