ST. HEDWIG FOUNDATION
WHAT WE DO
About the Foundation
It was established in order to implement actions to build a peaceful Europe, based on formal and informal education, with an emphasis on artistic, historical and political education, including people with disabilities.
The goal of the Foundation is educational activity, supporting civic, cultural and educational initiatives, especially those aimed at understanding between nations, generations and European integration, as well as the formation of a civic society. We implement them, among others by running a kindergarten and the Morawa International Meeting Center, as well as by implementing educational projects for the local community and people of senior age.
For 25 years, the Foundation has been running the Private Kindergarten of St. Jadwiga.
The Foundation implements projects aimed at hortiotherapists, people with disabilities, seniors and youth from schools with a horticultural and agricultural profile.
We increase the participation of older people in active forms of spending free time, improve the quality and standard of living of seniors to aging in dignity.
We run the Morawa International Meeting Center, where groups of all ages have the opportunity to meet, get to know each other and cooperate.
The Summer Academy of Music and the St. Hedwig International Violin Competition are held in Morawa.

We have experience in organizing music projects. We have large practice and concert halls as well as two pianos and two upright pianos. We work with many institutions that are willing to organize concerts with us. Every year, we invite musically talented young people from Poland, Germany and Ukraine to Morawa to train together at our International Meeting Center Morawa, and then to play concerts throughout Lower Silesia.
The International Art Symposium "Was, is and will be" is an event organized by the Academy of Fine Arts. E. Geppert in Wrocław, which took the form of an open air, when the Manor in Morawa becomes a laboratory and an art gallery.
