Love consists of a commitment which limits one’s freedom – it is a giving of the self, and to give oneself means just that: to limit one’s freedom on behalf of another.

Mateusz Waszczuk – he has been our scholar for eight years. The Foundation gave him motivation to become better and better as a student and incentive for social volunteering . As he admits himself – this is where he became brave and ready to talk to other people about God. Corporate prayer, fun and work in Warsaw Academic Community – which he had been a chairman for 2 years of – taught him how to be truly responsible and shaped his character with Christian values. Today, he’s trying to share with others all the things he has learnt as a scholar – e.g. by his investment in the annual project of “Szlachetna Paczka” (“The Noble Package”; a voluntary action consisting in supporting the poorest by sending them food, cleaning, clothes, toys and school supplies for children etc. These people are given these things, especially in Christmas period, and collect money themselves to make as many packages as possible).Read more
