What is Mondi Supports Talents?
The Mondi Supports Talents Programme is the programme which promotes the development of a child in one of the three categories: Art, Science or Sports.

It is aimed at children whose skills stand out from these of their peers, and their development would be impossible without external support, for example, due to financial constraints. We hope to open new avenues for them and make their first steps into adulthood easier. Our motto is “Make the dreams of a perfect partnership between people and companies come true”. We always look ahead, and one of our priorities is continuous development. As part of the “Mondi Supports Talents” Programme, we want to fulfill the dreams of young people about development, because someday they will decide about our future.

We are looking for new talents all year long, constantly recruiting for the Programme. There are two regular editions of the Programme – every spring and every autumn. It is then that we select our new charges.

Why do we do that?
  • Most of us come from small towns. We do understand that difficulties are overwhelming when you start your adult life. We want to remove the obstacles that these exceptional young people may face and give them an opportunity to reach their potential.
  • Development is very important to us. We are constantly improving our qualifications and we want to give others a similar opportunity.
  • We know that children are our future. We want to take care of it!
What is the award?
We offer financial support to pay the bills for the child’s talent development programme (e.g. course or training fees, purchase of equipment or materials enabling talent development, tickets etc.).

Financial support will be provided based on the Talent Development Plan. It will be designed by our company in collaboration with the child’s carer and the child itself. The carers’ task will be to list specific activities and subjects that will help the child to develop its unique skills and we will cover the costs.

We also provide our charges with professional help, advise in difficult choices or offer psychological support. We try to serve as mentors and share our knowledge and experience. We also open the door of our company for the winners in the programme, i.e. we show what our work and everyday challenges look like, and we invite them to participate in important company events, such as motivational seminars.

Why should your child participate?
  • Participation in the programme is free.
  • The aid that your child is likely to receive will be tailored to its needs.
  • We can assist you as a carer in ensuring the child’s future.
  • Our support is long-lasting – we sign a contract for at least a year.
  • Developing a child’s talent at an early stage will help them in their adult life.

18 years of age

The winners of the previous editions of the Programme
Kaja Ogrodnik

Kaja is a 9-year-old taekwondo athlete. She lives with her father and brother in Chwaliszów, a village near Wałbrzych. One of her achievements is the bronze medal in the Polish Championship in Bong Matsogi fights in April 2017.

During the winter camp at the beginning of 2018 Kaja was awarded the next belt in taekwondo, i.e. yellow with a green stripe. The camp was financed and the equipment was bought entirely from the funds of the MST Programme. Kaja is an extremely determined competitor. She strives for perfection and does not give up although she has already experienced many hardships in her life despite her young age. We are proud that we can aid her development.

Łukasz Tabaka

He is 14 and comes from Kotuń near Piła. His special gift is drawing and he dreams of becoming sports footwear designer in the future.

He mastered the art of drawing all by himself, devoting almost all his free time to practising. He actively participates in designing school decorations. By the time he became a winner in the MST Programme, his works had been mostly created using a regular pen and pencil, on sheets taken out of a notebook. Thanks to the support received as part of the Programme, now Łukasz works using professional gear. Łukasz also had a few sketching lessons. His progress in developing his talent is visible to the naked eye. We hope that thanks to his own persistence in achieving the goals and our help, Łukasz will fulfill his dreams!

Nadia Schmidt

Nadia is 11 by now and comes from Koninko.

Her talent can be seen right in the picture – she is practicing artistic gymnastics with significant successes. Among her track record are, among others, the first place at the National Winter Tournament Warsaw 2018 or the third place at the International Carramba Cup Tournament in 2018 Katowice and II and III place in the finals.

Her development is strongly supported by her parents – even her mother even learned to sew and is the creator of Nadia’s fine competition outfits! We are proud to join them in this support and we admire commitment.

She trains from the age of 7, starting as one of the youngest practitioners in the club. She is affiliated with SKF KS Poznań and the Greater Poland Volleyball Association. Her biggest dream is to qualify for national women’s volleyball representation. We hope a lot that we will help her reach this goal. She’s got a huge potential! She plays tournaments as part of the cadets, the youth, the junior category and also in the 3rd league GPVA and is a very strong keystone of their teams! He trains regularly and with significant commitment, not forgetting about school – she also has plenty of successes in this field.

Her coach described Gabrielle as one of the best players in the Greater Poland in her yearbook. We have a feeling that soon we will see Gabrielle on very well-known basketball courts and we keep our fingers crossed for her!
