We believe that NOW IS THE TIME to expand education beyond the classroom walls and rethink the learning framework in order to raise responsible global citizens who will feel confident and adequate to stand up and represent the rights of our planet, nature, ecosystems.
Children have become tiny cogs in the education system machine where their success is measured via fractioned curriculum and test-driven pressures. We are raising funds to expand the definition of the classroom and provide education based on a far more tactile, tangible and interconnected model with tools necessary to bring real solutions and alternative resolutions to the global issues that we now face as the society at large – aggression, terrorism, isolation, consumerism, materialism, disengagement, lack of positive role models, addictions, depression.
This summer, we are taking our first pilot group of children from Cuba, Poland and US to the ancient landscapes of Swietokrzyski Mountains, the oldest mountain ridge in Europe. The mission of our trip is to bridge our differences, blend cultures and paint the future where all of us can co-exist peacefully. During our 14-day adventure we will traverse rich territories of Poland’s mountains, caves and salt mines, immerse in the rhythms of local folklore art, history and languages through interactions with local people and international teachers, stay and paint projects in the Indian Village in the Cielce region, visit Aushwitz, the cities of Warsaw, Cracow and Kielce, historical monuments and castles.
WE NEED YOUR HELP to make this a reality. WE NEED YOUR HELP to help us break the walls and transform the illusion of divisiveness. WE NEED YOUR HELP to provide our children with tools that will help wake up the poet, the artist, the leader, the activist, the visionary inside of them. WE NEED YOUR HELP to help them paint a new picture of the future taking into the account not just the human and equal rights, but planetary rights of the Mother Earth and All Relations.
WE ARE GRATEFUL TO YOU FOR CARING!
