„Knoflik – the association for nonformal youth-education, is an organisation based on the volunteer-work of young people, that has the purpose of enriching the offer of free time activities in Western Bohemia.“ This was one of our sentences included in our application to the Interior Ministry. Knoflik is a group of enthusiasts. Most of them knew each other long before Knoflik existed. Almost all of them have spent a year as students in Germany. They came back from their stay with a lot of ideas in mind that lead to the foundation of Knoflik.
