Domino Effect in education

The Kulczyk Foundation has been working for the development of socio-emotional competences of children and adolescents since the beginning of its existence. To this end, we prepare unique lesson plans that, in an attractive and adapted to various stages of education way, explain the complex world of universal values and experienced emotions. The goal of these lesson plans is to support students in getting to know themselves and other people better. We believe that the development of socio-emotional competences from an early age allows you to become a better person and help your community more effectively.

Education helps to spread one’s wings and make dreams come true

Our projects

The Philippines / Do not stay indifferent to important matters

The lesson we invite you to is about involvement, and has been inspired by the activities run by the Fairplay For All Foundation in the Philippines. Students (aged 10-12) will develop the awareness of how to say what is important to them, what requires them to act and what does not need their action. They will be prompted to reflect on how they use their resources (including time and energy) and how they practice their values.

Rwanda / Find your space to communicate

The lesson we invite you to is about communication, and has been inspired by the know-how and activities run by the Empowering Children with Disabilities, a local non-governmental organization (NGO) in Rwanda. Students (aged 13-15) will learn how to reach an agreement in the communication process, how to use the paraphrasing technique, and what the main causes of barriers in communication are. They will reflect on how important communication is for them, and will become aware that communication is crucial not only in order to be understood, but also to express their needs.

India / Respect the boundaries of other people and do not let others cross your own

The lesson we invite you to is about defining our own boundaries, and has been inspired by the activities run by the New Light Foundation in India. Students (aged 10-12) will have the opportunity to understand how people feel when their physical boundaries are overstepped, and will learn to talk to their peers about it. They will have the opportunity to define their own boundaries and become aware of the ones that other people have.

Brazil / Seek and share knowledge

The lesson we invite you to is about sharing knowledge, and has been prepared on the basis of a know-how and activities run by the UERÊ Project in Brazil. Students (aged 13-15) will learn about the importance of sharing one’s knowledge and skills with other people. They will be able to see this way of sharing as not only a source of new knowledge and positive emotions, but also as a way to achieve a common goal and create an added value.

Timor-Leste / Join efforts to achieve a common goal

The lesson we invite you to is about cooperation, and has been inspired by the initiatives of the Santana Unipessoal in Timor-Leste. Students (aged 13-15) will learn about the value of cooperation as a chance to establish and deepen relationships with other people. They will be able to recognize that some of our skills or knowledge prove to be more useful when used together with other people rather than on our own. This, in turn, can positively affect our self-esteem.

Colombia / Treat others with respect

The lesson we invite you to is about respect, and has been inspired by the activities run by the Juanfe Foundation in Colombia. Students (aged 13-15) will learn about the importance of being respectful towards others as well as towards oneself. They will focus on respect as a tool to cultivate human dignity and a source of healthy self-esteem. Finally, students will reflect on the meaning of our personal boundaries and their role in experiencing our freedom.
