Foundation we run is called Makatka and this word in Polish means a type of woven tapestry, usually tiny, used to decorate walls. Yes, it is meaningful and I’ll be glad to explain but first I’ll give you a fact about our name which is crucial for the aim I’m reaching to you. The word we use to call mother in Polish is “matka” and in Makatka we have mother inside. We start from mothers and we concentrate on mothers because we believe that they are the core of happy families and therefore happy societies. We care for them to help them feel competent in their role and find their motherhood as strength.

Who are we?

We are doulas. That’s why we always concentrate on this absolutely miraculous time of carrying a baby under a heart, delivering them to the world and birthing a woman to be a mother. We care for all mothers that come to us, but those whose journey in this role just begins have always a special place in our hearts and resources.
We are mothers, we are doulas. We care for our families but also for our communities, our villages – the ones we create in Makatka.
We have a rough time behind our backs and we’re doing our best to overcome it. The roughness came with financial instability and because of this we ask you to help us. 

At the very moment we run Osnowa in Kraków, where we create a save and cosy place to meet, work together, share experience and empower each other. This place also need financial support as our subsidy has been cut. This could be a place of wonderful care for all mothers looking for a space to feel relieved and peaceful! We have been organising crochet workshops there and hope to do it again for those who would find  calmness in craft. We would be so happy to play music there with our children again! We would drink tea, eat cake and exchange recipes! 


If you feel like getting to know our mission and actions better, feel free to contact us! There’s a lot we do and lot we would like to do. So far we run online groups on Facebook which are true supportive and toy rental. Because we care not only for the mothers but Mother Earth as well!

Thank your for getting to know our cause. Please, be the part of our struggle to change the world by supporting our mission!

Together we can build a better future, I’m sure!
