Pawel Padusinski has been an SBA mentor for seven years. For six years, he has been working with the Ocalenie Foundation - the leading organization to support refugees and migrants in their integration and personal development. Ocalenie works on preventing discrimination and supports the education of children.
Paweł helped Ocalenie to develop a fundraising strategy and tools, improve its management function, and overcome financial crises brought on by changes of the government's policy towards migrants and refugees as well as the pandemic. Thanks to Pawel's help and the team's hard work, the number of people supported by Ocalenie has increased significantly. After the outbreak of refugee crisis on the Polish-Belarusian border and the war in Ukraine, Ocalenie has successfully met new challenges, providing help on an unprecedented scale.
