Our mission


„Happiness is
that multiplies
when it is divided.”.
The activities
of our Foundation is
the best proof of that.

We also accompany our mentees
once the projects have been completed.
We see, how uplifting it is when
someone extends a helping hand to those who are at a very low ebb of their lives.

The ERBUD “Common Challenges” Foundation has developed and runs its own mentoring programme called The TOGETHER Programme. It is based on cooperation between Mentor and Mentee. The aim of the cooperation is to help the mentee to become independent. Mentors are employees of ERBUD Group. Mentee may be a person getting ready to become independent, remaining in the care of foster custody.

for Success

The Foundation is implementing its proprietary Programme called “Recipe for Success”. The initiative is carried out in two ways. It involves both the educators and the mentees in children's homes. The mentees participating in the Program acquire skills needed in their independent lives and their educators learn how to support and motivate effectively young people so that they could become independent. In this way we help not only the currently independent but also other children growing up in the children’s home to become independent.


The Programme provides for:

12 x 5-hour
training sessions combined
with workshop
Individual psychological support
to the Mentees

"Recipe for Success" Programme
The Mentees start participation by attending an integration workshop aimed at developing a sense of security, mutual trust and openness to cooperation. This gradual entry into the Programme enhances psychological competence in the communication area. An important phase is also participation in creativity and creativity training.

The program consists of 12 training and workshop
sessions for tutors. Each session lasts 5 hours
