In Slovenia, 12 % of the population is at risk of poverty. The country’s ‘at risk-of-poverty’ income threshold is EUR 545. Tomi, a former drug addict, works for Kralji Ulice (Kings of the Street), a monthly newspaper written and produced by homeless people. Working for the newspaper, which enjoys EU funding support, gave Tomi the chance to share his views with others and to find his own way in the public sphere. He continues to spend a lot of his time in the streets, but no longer as a drug addict. He is now a photographer and also has a part time job in a second hand shop.
