    ACT LOCALLY
    Civic Leader of the Year 2020 and Act Locally summed up

    This year’s civic leaders and local initiatives animators were awarded at the Gala held online on March 11, 2021.

    The ceremony was opened by Jerzy Koźmiński, PAFF President and CEO who for a bigger part of his address spoke about “Act Locally“, the program that for over 20 years has been stimulating village and small town residents to social activity. He pointed to the special role of activities aimed at development of local communities among other areas which the Foundation is engaged in. Jerzy Koźmiński expressed his appreciation for all local and civic leaders who in that difficult 2020 took up activities aimed at counteracting negative effects of pandemic.  In the “Act Locally” Program alone almost 900 local projects worth a total of PLN 3,5 million were implemented in 2020.

    During the first part of the Gala the winners of the competition for the title of Civic Leader of the Year were announced. The competition refers to Wisława Szymborska’s initiative of 1996, later taken up  by Jacek Kuroń and “SOS Social Assistance” Foundation. The objective is to award civic involvement and promote activities of individual people who are solving various social problems with the support of NGOs, informal groups and local government institutions. Polish-American Freedom Foundation is the main partner, and the Academy for the Development of Philanthropy in Poland the substantive partner of the competition.

    The Newsweek Polska Editor-in-Chief Tomasz Lis noted that we should respect this year’s winners of the competition especially high, as they managed to do exceptional things in those most difficult times and thus passed the solidarity, empathy and love for other people exam.

    The Civic Leader of the Year 2020 in “local” category  went to Oliwia Łysiak of The Institute of Potential Association. She was awarded for holding charity actions for children and seniors who found themselves in a difficult situation, as well as for stimulating young people of Olszytn to take up pro-ecological actions, defend human rights and cultivate historical memory.

    The winner of national category was Sebastian Górniak, President of Balian Sport Foundation – for stimulating the disabled to activity and supporting their attempts to overcome their limitations through participating in sports activities in such disciplines as boxing, rugby or diving, as well as securing them access to specialist healthcare services.

    The Competition Committee distinguished also people who had been active in assisting those in need due to Covid -19 pandemic. The Civic Leader of the Year 2020 title in that category went to Aleksandra Czarna-El Baz, the founder of A Senior in Crown Foundation. Thanks to her, those seniors who needed it most got food, medical and psychological support. She managed to activate several thousands of volunteers and persuade numerous sponsors to join her campaign.

    Apart from main awards, the Competition Committee decided on three special awards. Two of them were received by Joanna Czerska-Thomas and Kosma Kołodziej – the coordinators of Support for Hospital program implemented in Bydgoszcz. The winners organized and ran an exemplary system of support allowing to secure means of personal protection and meals for staff of 19 hospitals and many nursing homes in Kujawsko-Pomorskie province.

    The third special award went to Aleksandra Smolińska, President of Stowarzyszenie Serduszko dla Dzieci (A Small Heart for Children Association). The Competition Committee pointed in its decision on that award that the winner has consistently been supporting development of children and young people of Warsaw district of Praga, and activating residents of that district to act, among other things through running Praska Światoteka and non-public Radiopraga.pl, as well as engaging local community in revitalization of backyards of the tenement houses and creating city bee yards.

    The Competition of the Civic Leader Committee is composed of: Renata Kim, head of the Society section, Newsweek Polska; Jerzy Koźmiński, Polish-American Freedom Foundation President and CEO; Jan Kuroń, Jacek Kuroń’s grandson and a famous cooking expert; Tomasz Lis, Newseek Polska editor-in-chief; Paweł Łukasiak, President of the Academy for the Development of Philanthropy in Poland; Janina Ochojska, President of the Polish Humanitarian Action; Przemysław Radwan-Röhrenschef, Vice President of the School for Leaders Foundation; and Michał Rusinek, President of Wisława Szymborska Foundation.

    In the second part of the Gala, the 11th round of the “Act Locally” Program finals were held. President of the Academy for the Development of Philanthropy in Poland Paweł Łukasiak noted in his address that special role in program implementation is played by communication. “The videos made by grant recipients are the excellent communication tool and show that such values of the program as social involvement, willingness to face challenges or resource sharing lead to great results even at the time of pandemic,” he said. The President pointed also to effectiveness of Act Locally Centers’ response to problems caused by the pandemic. The most effective ALCs and their good practices were awarded.

    In the Tell me… competition the awards were given for 2019 and 2020. The competition is addressed to the Act Locally Centers’ beneficiaries and its objective is to encourage them to look for interesting ways of describing their activities and promoting projects supported under Act Locally program, which leads to stimulating local communities and building the common good.
