The facility has been operating in Tarnów for 10 years
The idea to bring SIEMACHA to Tarnów was a joint initiative of the father. Andrzej Augustyński, President of DEMOS Foundation and Rafał Sonik, President of Gemini Holding.
– The fact that this occurs alongside the title deed makes us deeply rooted in Tarnów and makes us more responsible for the fate of children in these troubled times. From today we are here at home, dealing with local problems as our own. Through thick and thin, says the father. Andrzej Augustyński.
He does not hide his joy with the gesture of Raphael Sonic, who fulfilled his word 10 years ago about the future transfer of ownership to the foundation of the building.
A place to play and learn
Tarnowski Spot is a unique place. Here, young people can not only do their homework or benefit from educational aids, but they can also discover new interests, play musical instruments, create artworks or develop theater skills. They help with this Free workshopsSupport for personal, educational, social and physical growth and many excursions. Pupils can also count on the help of professionals: psychologists, educators, teachers and teachers in technical classes.
– The unique SIEMACHA initiative showed that despite the widespread digitization of life, children and youth still desire to have their own space where they spend time together. They can meet, play and learn there – from each other and from others – says Rafael Sonic, CEO of Gemini Holding.
He adds that the SIEMACHA interest became his second family.
I am proud to watch these young men, who are mostly adults, develop in their personal and professional lives thanks to the fact that one day they crossed the threshold of the slick. Sonik says such places that inspire, teach responsibility and collaborate should exist and evolve with future generations in mind.
