Born in 1972. She held the position of the Board President in Poland between 2010 and 2016, in March 2016, at the Board’s request, she was appointed the National Director as the person who knows the organisation like no other. She has been linked for many years to the Association and the Children’s Village in Karlino, developed near her home. By education she is an environmental engineer, a graduate of many postgraduate studies in management and the author of publications in the area of leading construction works. She has always acted and worked for the local community. She used to work as the manager of Department of Municipal Services, Environmental Protection and Investment at the Town Hall of Swidwin, she managed significant EU budgets while integrating water and sewer management in the Parsęty basin and built sewerage system in the metropolitan area of Gryfino. Barbara divides her time between her work for one of the large companies in Szczecinek and the Association. Even though she enjoys her work and she has been highly successful in her profession, she does not hide the fact that she works professionally to be able to devote to what is the most important for her, i.e. working for the benefit of abandoned and orphaned children under the care of SOS Children’s Villages in Poland.

It was under her leadership when the Association, which is most commonly perceived as SOS Children’s Villages, opened Family Strengthening Programmes in the communes of Karlino and Skórzec. These are preventive programmes for families at risk of breakdown. In the Association’s community centres, the Association’s pedagogues, psychologists and social workers do everything within their power for families to stay together and prevent children from going into foster care. In Poland, there are over 79 thousand children without parental care and nearly 1.5 million children live in poverty. Due to substantial social challenges, the Association wishes to include 3000 children into its care by 2020, that is twice as many as at this moment. This is the most important task for Barbara Rajkowska right now. Therefore she motivates her team to constantly search for new sources of financing, co-operates with many companies who are no strangers to corporate responsibility. Barabara Rajkowska actively battles the foster parenthood crisis, which has been continuing for many years in Poland, by boosting the image of this way of life in the eyes of Polish people. Owing to the efforts almost all the houses in SOS Children’s Villages are filled with children in need growing under the care of attentive SOS parents. The quality of support provided to SOS parents by pedagogues, psychologists or social workers of SOS Children’s Villages is very high.
The Director of the Polish Association, being a part of SOS Children’s International, is deeply interested in helping children across the entire globe. This is the reason why she supports actions for development of SOS Children’s Villages in Cameroon.
In her private life she is the mum of Hubert, loves diving and dancing.
