The Ark Children’s Foundation was founded on 19th May 2014 thanks to the support offered by the Foundation of Lukas Podolski, a football player, whose intention was to support children in his country of birth. The Ark’s concept has been derived from “Die Arche” Christliches Kinder- und Jugendwerk e.V., a German organisation closely co-operating with Mr Podolski. The key objective of the Ark Foundation is to improve the children’s living conditions and future prospects. A Polish branch of the Ark takes care of over 60 children coming from Warsaw’s district of Praga-Północ. We provide them with daily hot meals, support them in doing their homework and invite them to our sports and music events. But, first of all, we offer them our attention and care, foster interpersonal bonds and accompany them in the process of growing up. Witnessing how the working methods developed and tested by the German Foundation become rooted in the Polish culture and mentality is just fascinating.
