Today we have received amazing news from the European Parliament. The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation has been awarded the esteemed European Citizen's Prize, which honours exceptional achievements of European citizens and organization.
The language of instruction of the courses is Polish.
So far, we have trained:
27 701 teachers from 12 216 schools.
Almost 3 million children have attended the course!
The CPR Educational program was launched in 2006. Our courses are aimed at teachers who work with youngest children, that is the teachers of the integrated teaching classes in Polish elementary schools. The program can be carried out thanks to a group of Peace Patrol volunteers who have completed the instructor’s training, acquiring the official AHA qualifications. The volunteers are led by a group of instructors responsible for coordinating the courses all the year through.
Between April and June 2006, a pilot project of the program was run in Podlaskie and Dolnośląskie provinces. As the project turned out to be a spectacular success, since September 2006 the courses have been organized all over Poland on a regular basis.
The teachers attend a free course, where they learn CPR and how to successfully teach CPR and first aid to their pupils. Primary school children can learn all the important steps of first aid as well as how to behave in a dangerous situation, such as whom to call for help and what information to provide emergency services with.
