About Foundation

We have been working with children and youth for 10 years. We know how important it is to maintain cognitive curiosity of young people, encouraging to reflect on the world around them and to train the skills of independent thinking.

Specializing in non-formal education we can allow ourselves to present an individual approach to each participant of our classes, experiment with methods of creative thinking, elaborate author’s education programs and then test them in practice.

We refer to the concept of philosophy for children by Matthew Lipman, teaching how to ask insightful questions, how to argue clearly, lead a dialogue and think critically. We have carried out our own program of sex education for high school students that has been successful and has received very positive opinions, both among students as well as school counsellors and psychologists. Over the last 5 years in our workshops was attended by over 2,500 teenagers. We were also able to convince councilors of City Council that the sex education program should be financed from the city budget. The program has been running since 2012. This is a big success and Lodz is a pioneer such project in Poland. Implementation of the program in our city is helping to solve such a problems as: an early, unwanted pregnancy, dropping out of school, risky sexual behaviour, poverty passed on from generation to generation.

We cooperate with kindergartens, primary, secondary and high schools, orphanages, educational and social therapy centers.

Our team consists of 10 people among which are: sociologists, philosophers, anthropologists, psychologists, therapists, anti-dicrimination educators.

We love our work.
