Homeless people in the UK can receive free music and dance classes so that it becomes an alternative to earn some money.
Bark.com offers the opportunity to nominate homeless people to learn a new skill that generates income. Online market co-founder Kai Feller said: "It's basically about helping the homeless learn a new skill to help them improve their lives."
According to the company, learning math or English does not help them in the short term, but learning a new skill like playing the guitar or singing can almost instantaneously apply it to daily life. Being a very good way to return them as a company, something to the community.
More than 300,000 people in Britain were officially registered as homeless or living in an inadequate home in 2017. When Bark has received the nominations, they will coordinate meetings between the homeless person and a guardian.
It is expected that with their new skills they can get more money than asking. The company reported that they have music teachers in London, Manchester, Newcastle and Birmingham at this time, and hope to expand to more cities.
