For nearly 22 years, the SIEMACHA Association has built youth communities that make use of a network of educational, sports, and therapeutic centres. SIEMACHA is Poland’s largest civic organisation, strongly distinguished by its ideological identity and a clear institutional structure. Every day, the Association provides care for more than 2000 young people who – under the watchful eye of teachers and tutors – build lasting peer relations, gain new skills, and learn to be responsible.

The organisation operates from 30 locations, running day centres (SIEMACHA Spot), 24 hour centres operating day and night (SIEMACHA Spot 24/7), holiday centres (SIEMACHA Spot Camp), Com-Com Zone development centres, Progres Academy of Sport, and branches of the Kraków Psychotherapeutic Institute (KIP).

SOS

SOS Children’s Villages Poland has 1456 children in its care and has been operating in Poland for 30 years. In this time, we opened four Children’s Villages, i.e. a housing estate for SOS families. There are 5-8 children brought up in each family. Very often these are numerous, biological siblings. In the Children’s Village they are provided with love and safety that they did not experience in their biological families. Children in SOS Children’s Villages are abandoned and orphaned.

During those 30 years, over 300 children-in-care have left SOS Children’s Villages and are now independent and happy people. Their stories differ but all jointly agree that SOS Villages performed a key role in their lives. Our Association is running also Family Strengthening Programmes where SOS educators do everything possible for children not to be referred to alternative care. In such Programmes we have 10 day care centres for children from poor families and families threatened with breaking up, as well as counselling centres for parents.

SOS

Stowarzyszenie WIOSNA (SPRING Association) was established in 2001 in Cracow, as a public benefit organisation, to enable the Poles to help each other effectively and wisely. By creating and improving aid mechanisms and thanks to the commitment of thousands of volunteers, it gives the Poles the opportunity to share what they have with the most deprived persons, in such a way that those in need do not get addicted to the help, but it gives them an impulse to change their lives. The association offers the companies a range of mechanisms such as: partnership in the projects, cause related marketing, corporate volunteering and social investor, to build their image as socially responsible. WIOSNA is the organizer of SZLACHETNA PACZKA (the NOBLE BOX Project) and Akademia Przyszłości (the Academy of the Future) projects.
