It was established in 1997 on the initiative of the President of the Republic who is the honorary patron of the Foundation. The main task of the Foundation is to implement development cooperation projects. The priority area of the Foundation’s activities covers the Eastern Partnership countries: Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia, Armenia, and Azerbaijan. The Foundation emphasises support for democratic transition, development of civil society and local democracy, the principles of good governance, sharing the Polish experience of economic and political transformation, and supports free media and human rights organisations. In conducting its activities in Ukraine, the Solidarity Fund PL focuses on supporting sectoral reforms in social services, education system, and professional vocational training.
