The Federation for Educational Initiatives (Poland)


nowe logo fio3smallWe are an association of non-government organizations whose aims are to encourage and support the social initiatives of local citizens and the reforms to the Polish Educational System. We mainly focus on rural communities.

We believe that our joint effort will:

  • make the Polish school system efficient and modern
  • equalize the educational opportunities for urban and rural pupils
  • help the young generation to get a good start on the employment market
  • enable Polish rural communities to close the civilization gap
  • stimulate local and regional development

An economy founded on knowledge is a fundament for functioning as an equal member of the 21st Century United Europe. We are convinced that citizens initiatives supported by governmental administration and business are the way to achieve it.

The Federation for Educational Initiatives has its roots in such sources as: the national meetings of parents, teachers, the representatives of non-government organizations, schools, local governments and the national government. We have been operating since 1999.
