We will introduce you to the Małopolska Provincial Office in Krakow to join. This year, Łukasz, the voivode of Małopolska, took her patronage over it.
– During the nationwide database of school supplies and art materials, we can contribute to creating the future of the young generation of Poles from the Borderlands. Despite the fact that all are essential, they uphold and cultivate the tradition and the customs. These young people are already taking over from their parents the function of custodians of Polish memorial sites. It is worth being them on this path – says the voivode of Małopolska, Łukasz Kmita.
The “Kredkobranie” campaign takes place for the fifth time. This year it is accompanied by the slogan “Color the future for 5”. We would like to remind you that education has a huge impact on future young people living in the Borderlands. It is the youngest Poles living in the Borderlands and Polish educational institutions in Lithuania and Ukraine that will receive the collected gifts.

By collecting over 140,000 sets of various school supplies: crayons, paints, notebooks, pads, pencil cases, writing and art supplies, etc., worth over PLN 1 million, we helped over 1,500 from Lithuania and Ukraine. Inclusive schools, classes, but also environments, workplaces and individuals are involved when needed – says Tomasz Konturek, activist, president of the board of the I.
