What we do?

We are an independent Poznań non-governmental organization, operating under various names since 1996 at the local, regional, national and international levels.

Our goals are to initiate, run and support educational, social and cultural activities for and for the local community and to build intercultural dialogue between representatives and representatives of different cultures. We want to influence the creation of a world without hatred, full of intentional understanding, for which we care about together, starting from our own backyard, but also going far beyond the horizon.


We promote and organize volunteering in the local and international dimensions for social change and personal development.


We operate in the field of non-formal education. We organize activities aimed at transcultural, anti-discrimination and civic education.


We operate locally. We support the local community in the social and cultural dimensions. We start the changes from our own backyard.
