‘Żółty Talerz (Yellow Plate)’


“‘Żółty Talerz (Yellow Plate)’ is a social investment that will produce a specific social benefit. My brother and I have given PLN 4 million to the program to reach a total of 1 million full-quality meals to children within 12 months. ‘Żółty Talerz’ has four strategic objectives and each one benefits those who we are fighting for,” says Dominika Kulczyk.

These objectives include more meals, better quality and higher intensity meals, and the activation of local communities around the cafeterias. Caritas, Food Banks, the Children's Friends Society, the Polish Red Cross, and SOS Children’s Villages will all utilize their experiences to move in this direction. “The program has certain objectives, but it also has measures to ensure its effectiveness. We want all the money to turn into gains for specific children. We are active in the place where the children sit down to have their meals,” notes Marek Borowski, Kulczyk Foundation’s expert on the ‘Żółty Talerz’ program.


The program initiated by Dominika and Sebastian Kulczyk is intended to support additional nourishment for Polish children. “The enormous amount of money and the generosity of many people are what distinguish the system in our country. Non-governmental organizations get involved and find solutions in areas where they are most needed. This makes us all play for the same team,” explains Marek Borowski.

“Żółty Talerz is a union of organizations that is unique on the national scale. If we all care about our children eating regular and healthy meals, every child will receive a full-value dinner! Let’s do it together,” encourages Dominika Kulczyk.

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."
