A start-up enterprise called 'Shades Tour Vienna' is running tours around Austria's capital city by employing homeless people as guides.
The social business intends to provide paid jobs and valuable work experience to the city's 7,100 homeless people, who often find it difficult to get employment, according to the Independent.
The tours include all the usual city landmarks, but also visit either an emergency night shelter, a soup kitchen or a social work session.
This extra stop gives the homeless, or ex-homeless, tour guide the opportunity to share a bit of their world and life experience with tourists – changing the public's view of homelessness.
