Partners Poland Foundation was established in August 1997 after two years of dynamic, informal activity aimed at supporting the transformation processes on the way in Poland, Central and Eastern Europe. The creation of Partners Poland was inspired by the cooperation with an American network organization named the Partners for Democratic Change, the first in Central Europe to run programs promoting mediation and constructive methods of settling conflicts.
