FORGLASS commits 35,000 EUR to LifePlan

FORGLASS and the Foundation of Marek Kaminski determined in their commitment to LifePlan

Despite the pandemic, the partners are hard at work on the third edition of LifePlan – a developmental program for teenagers (12-16), based on the Pole Method developed by Marek Kamiński, a well-known Polish polar explorer and traveller. In the program, the participants formulate their goals and learn how to achieve them, build self-esteem and develop a winning attitude. They also acquire new competences that realistically allow them to make better decisions and shape their lives.

Jasiek Mela, a disabled teenager, reached both the North and South Poles in one year with Marek Kamiński. What he learned through that experience is now included in the 8-month LifePlan program and does not require a costly polar expedition – for one teenager, the scholarship for the entire program is only 2,600 EUR.

FORGLASS has committed 35,000 EUR to the program again this year. And thanks to campaigns like this, four more companies have joined LifePlan’s partners in 2020, committing an additional 25,000 EUR. These partners made it possible for 25 teenagers to graduate from the program in 2019 and another 25 in 2020 – that is 50 kids, who now, thanks to LifePlan, have a bright future.

The companies that have already joined FORGLASS and to whom the company is extremely grateful are:

  • Quest Change Managers – a business consultancy company
  • Stando – a company that specializes in transporting chocolate
  • Kofea – coffee producer
  • TEQUM – a company that designs large industrial facilities

Together with these companies, FORGLASS has decided to take responsibility for ensuring the financial stability that is necessary for the continuing development of LifePlan. By relieving the Foundation from the pressure of looking for sponsors, we let them focus on what they do best – changing the lives of teenagers. FORGLASS encourages other entrepreneurs to join this group of partners, who not only make a money transfer, but also willingly share knowledge and experience with young people, who need it most.

During the current pandemic, which necessitates limiting social contacts, different solutions are needed. FORGLASS is busy preparing a virtual version of the program, so that participants can still experience the same learnings, as in a live program.

FORGLASS invites you to sponsor at least one child every year – you will soon find out how much good the money has done. What’s important is not the amount, but the continuity and stability of funds, so that LifePlan program can grow, just like we grow our companies.
