Support Our Foundation

100% of donors’ contributions go directly to the school.

Pawel’s Children is a non-profit 501c3 foundation whose mission is to support the education and well-being of children in need. We currently support schools in India and Poland by providing funds for physical and digital infrastructure, student transportation, school supplies, tuition, meals, healthcare and enrichment opportunities.

Our goal is for every child, regardless of their background or current circumstances, to have the support they need to achieve their dreams. To advance this goal, Pawel’s Children takes no overhead, so 100% of donations the foundation receives go directly to schools educating and caring for children in need.

The Abhaneri School in Rajasthan, India, is little more than a series of connected brick lean-tos with dirt floors, no doors, and a tin roof. The students sit on dirt floors for classes; walls painted with black rectangles serve as chalkboards. Basic school supplies are limited, and the school has no heat. Most of the children have no shoes; those who do have soles that are worn to the ground. And although they wear uniforms, their clothes are ill-fitting and threadbare.

Pawel was born in Poland in 1991, and in 1995, our family moved to the U.S. When Pawel entered preschool, he did not speak English, but this did not hold him back. While he never lost his sense of his Polish roots, he quickly acclimated to his new country. He started playing soccer in kindergarten and fell in love with the game; he continued to play soccer throughout grade school, middle school and high school. “Soccer has always played a tremendous role in my life; back as early as I can remember, my family would come together to watch games. Even as a toddler, I would sit with the adults and cheer for our country,” he wrote in his Wilton High School Varsity Soccer Yearbook.
