“To Hear In Time” is a project by Tomasz Zieliński, who teaches listening. Moved by the devastating suicide statistics among young people in Poland, he has launched a project whose main objective is to raise money to create places of help. Tomasz Zieliński organizes trainings for adults to teach them to listen and talk to young people and to support them in solving problems. Why? Because Poland has the second-highest rate of attempted suicides among teenagers in Europe. The organisation wants to reach every school in the country in the coming years to remind children of how wonderful and unique they are. The Foundation also wants to tell their parents how to listen to them in a different, more profound way.
The “Synapsis” Foundation and the “Exempt From Theory” project will also receive funds from Cushman & Wakefield’s client gift budget according to the percentage of votes cast: 27% and 11%, respectively. The firm will donate PLN 12,600 to “To Hear In Time”, PLN 5,400 to the “Synapsis” Foundation and PLN 2,200 to “Exempt from Theory”.
“We are very thankful to everyone who got involved and voted. We are pleased that for another year in a row we are able to support organisations helping people in need. In our opinion, the ‘To Hear In Time’ project is very strongly aligned with current social challenges and provides real support to young people whose voice is very often not heard. It is part of our business strategy to take action that has a positive impact on both individuals and business; we are therefore delighted that voters chose this project,” says Anna Trochim, Head of HR Poland, Cushman & Wakefield.
