International Cuisine Day – ESC 2014
International Cuisine Day – ESC 2014

Last Tuesday (15.07) we had another edition of International Cuisine Day at Thomson Reuters office. Gathered money will be spent on upcoming English Summer Camp. Thomson Reuters is our camp partner & sponsor for over 4 years so far.

During this edition we managed to gather a big number of cooks – 28 Thomson Reuters employees volunteered to cook for children. We had both vegetarian and meat dishes, as well as cakes and desserts. The meals were from all over the world. The number of people buying was also impressive, we sold everything in half of hour and we managed to collect 1612,13 zł. The total sum will be donated to this year Camp.

We would like to thank everyone who participated in this event!

Program of the English Summer Camp 2014

English Summer Camp 2014 program`s preparations are in full swing. This year we`ve decided to take up the topic of automatic control engineering and robotics. That`s why the main objective of the Camp will be to construct robots. First attempts to build a model which will be constructed by the younger and older participants of ESC 2014, have already been made. What is more, another part of our mysterious plan is to build labyrinths.

Here there are some photos from testing. Does it seem quite promising? 🙂 Please follow our profile on FB, as soon we are going to invite you for the event connected to this idea.

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!
