Getting married? You can help us!
Getting married? You can help us!

Are you or a friend of yours is getting married?

So…we encourage you to take part in our Wedding Campaign!!

What does it mean? You could ask the wedding guests to bring things that children need, instead of flowers. We can pick them from you and pass to the children. We could collect accessories, sweets and many more things for the children of our camp!

In case that you need more information, you are more than welcome to contact us!

Forum for initiating development
Forum for initiating development

In June 11th PMI Gdańsk Branch volunteers together with the people working on the next English Summer Camp edition took part in Forum Inicjowania Rozwoju.

This forum was a one-day conference about cross-sectoral cooperation, which main goal is to spread best practices between different sectors. The English Camp initiative was invited to this event and had an opportunity to present their achievements during the session devoted to good practices in the implementation of cross-sectoral projects. Katarzyna Gralla, Adriana Grzenkowicz &

Wojciech Tyborowski spoke about this to almost 250 conference participants that were present this year. In the afternoon an active session “Training of generating cross-sectoral projects” led Pzemysław Kotecki, newly elected president of PMI Gdańsk Branch together with few moderators.

Fundraising Workshops
Fundraising Workshops

In order to organize next camp, our great volunteer team has to collect the funds. Although we have a lot of different ideas, it would not hurt us to learn more about fundraising, tools that we could use and simply how to make it good and efficient.

That’s why we organized, for the second time, workshops with Maria Olszewska, certified Fundraiser. During six hours we have been studying not only about the tools, but also practicing initiating contact with new people. We have also sorted out our current ideas and come up with some new ones. Based on participants’ opinion that was an amazing workshop, which hopefully will result in gaining funds for the upcoming English Summer Camp.

We would like to thank Maria for devoting the time and preparing great workshops for us!
