Who we are
The Identity of Benediktus
Benediktus is the association of people who live their life based on Christian values in the community of people with and without disabilities. They seek to reveal deep values of life and the uniqueness of each person through the relationships in this community.
The Mission of Benediktus
Our mission is to help people with an intellectual disability to recognize and make use of their gifts and to discover the joy of friendships, to help them to show the others their inner values. These values we live in the community through our common life and work. Together we try to recover the Christian values and the culture heritage in Region Vysočina by organizing traditional festivals and the development of handcraft. Together we are also developing the community centre for people with an intellectual disability in Modletin in Železné hory (The Iron Mountains).
