Our aid projects help us understand the problems the modern world is facing. Our documentaires and educational programs drive change across societies .

Documentaries

Our documentaries shine a light on community problems in different parts of the world, and present organisations and local unsung heros who benefit from our support. In Poland, the Domino Effect TV series is created in cooperation with TVN - the largest private television in Poland. Through this work, we are able to reach those who might have never heard about a specific issue or the way in which they can help. This partnership results in a number of long form documentaries, which have been recognised at international film festivals. As part of our partnership with the CNN Freedom Project, we also produce a series of documentaries for English speaking audience. The series explores the issues of modern slavery and human trafficking, and is regularly broadcast on CNN International.

Educational programs

Since the beginning of its existence, the Kulczyk Foundation has been working to shape the socio-emotional competences of children and adolescents. We prepare unique lesson plans adapted to various stages of education. These focus on explainining the complex world of universal values and emotions, encourage reflection and the ability to draw conclusions. Ultimately help to build knowledge about ourselves and the world, and to shape attitudes towards the reality that surrounds us. As part of this commitement, we also provide workshops, conferences for teachers and faculty staff. We believe that wise education, implemented in a spirit of freedom and empathy, is a basic component of sustainable development for every human being, as well as a chance for a good start in adult life. No matter where they are from.

Domino Effect: Free, despite all

The tragedy of immigrant women forced into prostitution in Italy, the suffering of African victims of female genital mutilation, the humiliation and missed op-portunities of girls suffering from period poverty, or the everyday life of wom-en from Bosnia and Herzegovina who still suffer from the trauma of war – these are the most important problems that Dominika Kulczyk addresses in the new, eighth season of the documentary series "The Domino Effect". For the first time, the program is devoted entirely to women and the strength with which they face difficulties resulting from patriarchal culture, traditions, and a difficult economic and political situation. All of the very personal stories of women's strength, courage and their disagreement with exclusion prove that women are "free, despite all."

The activities of the foundation which I head are based on the use of sustainable solutions.
