The AntiSchemes 2 Foundation was launched in 2008. Her name refers to the main idea that inspired her creators: breaking stereotypes and patterns. Then there was the idea of teaching young people the attitude of openness and tolerance to the Jewish minority by cleaning and caring for Jewish cemeteries in the Podkarpackie and Małopolskie voivodships. The initiative was transformed into a foundation in July 2014. The AntiSchemes 2 Foundation is a non-profit organization.
The aims of the Foundation are to promote culture in order to break stereotypes against national and ethnic minorities through intercultural education, care of places of remembrance and local tolerance initiatives in Poland. The aim is also to support schools and charitable activities related to them.
At present, the Foundation covers the area of two voivodships: Małopolskie and Podkarpackie, but with the planned development the institution has the ambition to extend this coverage to initiatives with a national and even international impact.
The Foundation directs its activities primarily to children, young people, but also heads of educational institutions, teachers, educators, local leaders and cultural leaders.
The organization has the most experience in youth education for tolerance, the protection of memorial sites and the organization of workshops for young people (including the disabled).
The AntiSchemes 2 Foundation was registered in the 12th District Court for Kraków – Śródmieście in the National Court Register under the number KRS 0000515022.
