Dublin or Drogheda is giving his visitors a unique experience.

Cool Story - Dublin or Drogheda is giving his visitors a unique experience.

Dublin, Dublin is the capital and largest city of Ireland is offering tourists a guide with a difference. they are allowing Homeless Dubliners to have had a new to get off the street under a scheme that trains them as tour guides.

The guides trained and employed by My Streets are all people who are currently homeless or who have experienced homelessness in the past. This tour gives these homeless people the job of a travel guide. They guide the visitors to discover the beautiful corners of the city and earn money in return. The tour proves beneficial for both the parties the visitors as well as for those homeless citizens. This tour is a way to serve the community.

The social enterprise My Streets Ireland aims to give some of the Irish capital’s homeless new skills and an income for showing visitors the city.

Trainees choose a theme for their tour and get help with its research and presentation. The guides receive half of the ticket sales and the remainder is plowed back into running the project.

“I never dreamed this would happen,” says Eddie Dooner, 27, who was living in a tent in Dublin’s Phoenix Park, but now has his own flat. “I want to change people’s views. Just because you’re homeless doesn’t mean you’re a bad person.”

Similar schemes are running in other European capitals, including Berlin, Vienna, and Prague.
