Mission

To unite people in the name of solving common local issues, to convince Bardejov citizens that they have the power to address the issues in their community. The foundation strives to achieve these goals by providing small financial grants to support local initiatives as well as technical and advisory services.

Most Meaningful Change

Our foundation has set up regular meetings with other local NGOs and government officials. As a result, many more citizens have participated in local public life and more spaces have been reconstructed for public use.
