Help Polish Orphans & City Students to Go Beyond the Classroom
Donate Now - You Can Make A Difference.
Children living in orphanages in Poland have limited mobility and they feel left out.
Ambitious students are missing opportunities to prove they care and can make a difference.
Your donation will bring orphan and urban students together
hand in hand for projects, community service and trips outside their classrooms.
Growing number of people feel detached. Both under-resourced and privileged live in bubbles.
Young learners are left alone and need real practice.
We offer middle & highschool students an opportunity to push their knowledge up and make positive change by teaching ambitious students about current social issues while linking school subjects. It is the easiest way to reach diverse learning styles.
Adaptation - COVID showed that virtual tools are useful and our actions have consequences for others. Education is changing to meet the modern needs of our youth. We know our children respond well when they get involved with real projects as they learn.
What happens when students can go beyond learning and actually do good. Imagine researching social issues, to go out and do something about it, and then document our achievements.
