The Foundation has arose in September 2013. It has came to being in order to become a publisher of a polish language web journal: BliskiWschod.pl. The organization did not have any external founding yet. Expected future funding are grants, donations and advertising space on BliskiWschód.pl website.
The organization consists of three persons in the managing board. It is located in Ostrowiec Swietokrzyski, Poland. As a publisher of BliskiWschod.pl the foundation cooperates with many scientific institutions (e.g. Jagiellonian University, Warsaw University), similar websites and organization (e.g. Amnesty International, Solidarni z Iranem, Histmag), as well as publishing houses in Poland, such as "Czarne", "Dialog", "Smak Slowa". Many volunteers are engaged in work on the website.
The mission of the foundation is an education on democratic, ecological, humanitarian and human rights values, especially according to underdeveloped countries. The organization aims to educate Poles about these values, how they are perceived in other cultures and what is needed in so called Global South. The foundation concentrates at the moment only on MENA region.
The main project of the Every Man Foundation is BliskiWschod.pl web journal, available on www.bliskiwschod.pl. The website provides news and analytical information on the MENA region in polish. It brings MENA culture closer to the polish internet audience. The website has existed for 3 years. Since that time it has become well recognized.
Another current activity of the foundation is promotion of art, documentary and reportage that focuses on humanitarian issues, development and human rights. It help in circulation of work of artists from MENA region and supports polish artists that wish to talk about above mentioned issues.
