Nordic Walking, cycle of handicraft workshops or blogs writing training for people 40+. During 3 years of the "You Choose, We Help" programme Tesco Polska supported as many as 190 local projects in Poland. Each of them was a real support. From April 1, active Poles have a chance to get one of 375 grants - the 6th edition of the programme has launched.

For the purposes of the programme, Poland has been divided into microregions, within which organisations can compete for financial support of their activities. The rules of the programme do not change - in each of the regions, three social initiatives will receive co-financing in the amount of PLN 5,000, PLN 3,000 or PLN 1,000. The ideas for local activities can be submitted using the form available at from 1 to 29 April 2019.

Everyone can apply to the programme - both a non-governmental organisation, a social cooperative, a public institution, as well as a group of residents that actively works in the local community – all of them can submit an idea for a neighborhood project. The submitted projects are very authentic, their subject matter directly responds to the needs of a given region. Initiatives may concern educating of children and young people, promoting healthy lifestyle, refreshment of urban spaces, activation of older people, actions for animals and the environment, nurturing local traditions or other areas for which residents want to have more influence.

More information about the programme can be found on the website (in Polish only).
