description of organisation

FERSO Foundation is a non-profit organization established in 2004. It is a Public Benefit Organization, a member of the National Federation of NGOs and the NGO Federation of Lodz. The main aim of FERSO is to support sustainable development of civil society through education, art and multimedia technologies. The Foundation achieves its objectives by organizing and financing lectures, workshops and trainings. It organizes out-door activities, green schools, summer and winter camps, concerts, publications, exhibitions and sport events. The main aim of the organization has expanded and now it is focused on increasing civic participation, the promotion of democratic values and sustainable lifestyle. FERSO is one of the leading organizations in the field of NON-FORMALECOLOGICAL and INTERNATIONAL CITIZENSHIP EDUCATION in the region. FERSO develops its own innovative educational programs for all age groups. Among children who we work with are those at risk of exclusion, from poor families and orphans. We offer them free-of-charge activities. We were also working with the youth from rural areas and support their participation in YiA and Europe for Citizens programs, facilitating their non-formal learning process and development of self-conscious young citizens. For years FERSO has been very active in EVS which aims to encourage the participation of less advantaged young Europeans. As for adults, we were realizing a Grundtvig Senior Volunteering Program for the unemployed.
