Our team is made up of teachers, educators and therapists, although not only. Most of all, we are great friends. We like to think we have an original sense of humour, along with unlimited creativity and an endless enthusiasm for our work. We are proof that good relationships can have a good effect on the quality of work of our entire team. That’s us!


Damian Kupczyk

President of the Foundation. An interesting guy! Children’s therapist, educationalist, tutor. Nobody can match his ability to naturally transform difficult theoretical knowledge into simple language full of real-life anecdotes. Someone once said of him that he talks like a politician – and there may be something to this. Incredibly well-read and intelligent, he is also someone who will help anyone in any situation, wearing his heart on his sleeve. For him there is no problem that cannot be solved. Damian is the most colourful character of our team. A bald man with a beard – that’s him!

Working as an occupational therapist and personal budgeting trainer for adults with disabilities, Damian has many years of professional experience. As a child therapist, he has also been deeply involved in conducting sociotherapy to individuals, as well as supporting the development of pupils in primary schools.
