Helping young people to let them help themselves

$80 $9,300
Raised Remaining


Volunteers create 20 working spaces for 6-month international workers. The latter run cultural workshops for 200 rural children. They empower kids for future and develop their own leadership skills.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Problems being addressed: 1) Historical prejudices and misunderstandings 2) Unequal opportunities for personal development 3) Shortage of local leaders the developing world We invite volunteers from low- and medium-income countries to run extra-curricular classes in rural Wielkopolska and work with us for 6 months. Rural youth meets foreigners, often for the first time, and learns about the wider world through varied curriculum. Volunteers acquire a wide range of skills and a language

How will this project solve this problem?

- We organize a conference in Poznań, Poland to recruit 10 Polish volunteers and train them - With the new volunteers we fundraise, build local partnerships and recruit 20 foreign volunteers - Foreign volunteers come and work with rural youth

Potential Long Term Impact

We target 5 rural schools, 150 pupils in each. Through direct contacts, young students will boost kids horizons and imagination. Besides supplying the children for the future, the project develops volunteers' experience and counteracts prejudices.
