Documentaries

Our documentary films show the problems of communities around the world and the related activities of non-governmental organizations supported by the Foundation. "Domino Effect" series is created thanks to cooperation with TVN - the largest private television in Poland. This partnership results also in other documentaries - awarded at film festivals around the world. Kulczyk Foundation also cooperates with CNN International in the production of documentary films as a part of the CNN Freedom Project. Modern slavery is their main topic.

Season VI

In the sixth season of the documentary series "Domino Effect", Dominika Kulczyk reaches those in need in Africa, Asia, and South America. There, she helps to solve the problems of local communities, cares for a better childhood, provides access to education and medical care, but above all - she fights for freedom. - It is scary and unacceptable that in the 21st century, there are still 40 million slaves, including 10 million child-slaves. The problem is growing even more due to the world's indifference. That is why the common objective of Kulczyk Foundation's activities presented in the sixth season of the series is to bring back lost childhood to children - says Dominika Kulczyk.

Domino Effect - Season VI

Episode 1: Ghana - Child slaves

In the premiere episode of the sixth season of the "Domino Effect", Dominika Kulczyk travels to Lake Volta in Ghana, where she participates in the rescue of child-slaves, who live in terrible conditions and work as fishermen. Some children are forced into slave labor when they are only 4 years old. Almost all of them work several hours a day, and are severely punished for any disobedience. Many of them eat only once a day. Some, unfortunately, die. The support provided by Kulczyk Foundation enables PACODEP - a local NGO fighting against slavery - to save more children, and provide a better care for those who manage to free themselves from their "masters". In the "Village of Life" run by PACODEP, children find a safe home and school. They regain childhood and receive a chance for a better future.

Episode 7: Namibia - First bike

Namibia is a country full of economic and social contrasts. Although it is one of the richest African countries, still almost 30% of its inhabitants live below the poverty line. Many of them cannot even afford to travel to work or to distant schools and hospitals. In response to this problem, the local NGO BEN Namibia, supported by Kulczyk Foundation, provides the poorest with access to bicycles. To this end, it has created a network of dozens of stores and service centers, where people can buy a bike at an affordable price. Profits from sales are allocated to maintaining the network of stores and service points, thanks to which it is possible to reach thousands of people across the country. Bicycles provided free of charge go to people who need them most, but above all, to employees and medical volunteers who can reach more patients.

Episode 8: Peru - Children to the rescue

In Peru, there is the largest city in the world, Inquitos, to which no land road leads. You can get there only by plane or by boat. Belén - the poorest district of the city, is flooded with Amazon waters for six months. This results in many problems for the local community, such as drowning and diseases related to water pollution. When the river level is raised, most of the waste is discharged directly into the river. In such water, people wash clothes and dishes. Children from Belén have problems getting to school or finding a safe place to play. The employees of the INFANT organization support them by implementing actions aimed at changing the surrounding reality. These include "Children to the rescue" project, which involves patrolling places where there are children who cannot swim, or organizing swimming lessons for the youngest. Children are also involved in the fight against domestic violence.
