SIEMACHA Association: Fighting for a better future for children & youths

SIEMACHA is a dynamic non-profit organization fighting for a better future for children and youths. In today’s world, which creates generations of passive consumers, they inspire young people to become creative citizens. They run a network of “modern playgrounds” that provide young people with all the facilities they need for their personal and social growth. SIEMACHA’s playgrounds are carefully designed, equipped with the highest quality materials and located in convenient places. They believe young people need an attractive space for social development outside of the home and school. Supporting the youth of today and creating the future leaders of society is at the core of SIEMACHA’s mission. 

Social activity must face the challenges of a fast-changing world. SIEMACHA works by carefully observing the reality of society, drawing conclusions that lead to acitons that overcome the existing schemes of non-profit activity. They combine proven ideas with the needs of today’s world, believing that that’s how social innovations become reality. Since, for instance, more and more young people waste their time in shopping malls, this is where an appealing educational offer should find its place. That’s the founding idea of the world’s first “modern playground” located in shopping mall. However, they also have many more such achievements:

'As a strong Polish social organization we are interested in participating in international networks for public stakeholders, social entrepreneurs and non-profit organizations. There is still so much to be done in the field of social activity. Both venture philanthropy and social economy seem to promise a lot of good changes. We will do our best for the effective development of children and youths.'
