Fundacja Promocji Rekreacji "KiM"
The KiM Fundation has the status of a public benefit organization. Its mission is a promotion of various forms of sea and river kayaking. Our activities are funded with donations, various grants from municipal and public sources.
We are really a very mixed group of kayakers – from about 20 to over 70 years of age, some of us have been kayaking competitively in the past, some are kayak instructors and some are just recreational kayakers. Some of us like white water or logjam kayaking, some like rivers or lakes, some go out farther and farther onto the sea, and some like all of these. A few of us compete in kayak marathons, a few have done some long distance sea trips. Every year during our flagship event – a two day Vistula river trip – new members are admitted. They mostly come from our winter kayak school, but the only condition of membership is that a candidate must make the 150 km river trip.
The main aim of the KiM Foundation is to promote kayaking as a recreational sport. To this end we:
We work with children, teenagers and adults without any age limit. Our activities are non-profit and addressed to local communities. Some of our events are funded by local governments and in that case citizens of a funding locality have preference and usually all fees are waived for them.
You can visit our webpage www.fundacjakim.pl, where you can look at our trip reports under “Wyprawy i inne” – descriptions are in Polish, but they contain lots of pictures, and “a picture is worth a thousand words”….
You can also send us an e-mail, in English, to firstname.lastname@example.org
Especially if you are in Warsaw and want to do some paddling – drop us a line. Usually every weekend we organize some trip.
