Challenge

Dreaming and imagining what is possible to achieve is shaped by the place of living, access to culture, experiences of our relatives and friends.Living in small communities means limited access to opportunities of developing talents, passion. In Zywiecczyzna region (over 150 000 people) there is one cinema, no university, few libraries and strong folk tradition. Every third Polish from small communities until is over 30 plans to leave his town or village because lack of possibilities to develop

Solution

Many young people do not see space to present their skills, their talents in small communities. Scholarships granted to young people help them e..g to participate into professional workshops, scientific conferences, to buy tools and equipment necessary to develop their talents. Important is that all scholars have tutors' support and promotion from Foundation. This kind of empowerment made them believe in themselves; they can stay or leave their small communities but they have freedom of choice.

Long-Term Impact

Ten young people from small communities in South of Poland will receive scholarships based on their talents and passion (min. 500$ per person). These founds allow scholars make passion their profession; e.g. to participate in workshops, conferences, implant innovations. We believe that such programs built communities and has long-term impact. All scholars during scholarship program are educated about volunteering, sharing their stories and talents with the others.
