English Summer/Winter Camp initiative was established by Project Management Institute Gdańsk Branch (PMI GB) in 2004. Then, for the very first time the camp was organized for a group of children from the neediest environment. It aimed, firstly, to increase English knowledge, secondly – introduce basics of project management and provide as well a wonderful and creative time spent on the camp. After several successful editions, in 2010 was born the idea of developing the program and expanding it by organizing winter edition.
For the third time English Camp could count on the generous support of our initiative by LPP S. A. and its brand – Reserved Kids. We had a pleasure to give to LPP S.A. a Gold Sponsor status for English Winter Camp 2014. Additionally, the brand Reserved Kids, which is owned by LPP S.A. has prepared for us a charity Fashion Show, where children participating in English Camp presented the clothes of this company.
Thanks to the commitment of our Sponsor, 36 children had a chance to participate in English Winter Camp 2014. The support provided by LPP S. A. helped to organize two-weeks holidays full of attractions, that definitely were unforgettable experience for many of the participants.
For English Camp, LPP S. A. is not only a Sponsor, which offers financial and material support. It is also a socially responsible partner, whose employees as our volunteers with a willingness join the camp preparations, eg. by organizing and conducting the Fashion Show, that is considered by children as one of the greatest events during the whole camp.
Clothing brands that belongs to LPP S.A.: Reserved, Cropp, House, Mohito, Sinsay are already present in 1,300 stores based in 11 countries of Central and Eastern Europe and soon the flagship brand – Reserved will welcome as well their first clients in Germany and Dubai.
