NGO DEI Working Capital Crowdfunding Scheme

About NGO DEI

NGO DEI (www.ngodei.org) was established in Prague, the Czech Republic in May 2020, as a non-profit art and cultural institution. We held over 30 exhibitions and events to promote art and Hong Kong culture. We are establishing our community and contributing to the local population in the Prague 7 district. We strive to assist newly arrived Hongkongers to adopt the Czech way of life and pass on Hong Kong culture.

Founded by creative and diligent Hongkongers and Czech people, NGO DEI is renowned in Prague as a Hong Kong Art and Cultural Center. We are currently operating the “Jsem Čaj Kee” cafe and gallery DEI, to promote the value ​​of Hong Kong. Last month, NGO DEI hosted the “Hong Kong XX Festival” and convened Hongkongers from all tracts of Europe. Attracting numbers of young volunteers. NGO DEI believes the creativity and energetic attributes of the youth are essential in promoting Hong Kong culture and our organization.
