Julia Krepska – co-founding director

After living and traveling extensively in Asia, I decided to set up a non-profit organization to help those most in need.

Running Our Sansar has been the most rewarding and challenging work I’ve ever done.

I love building something special with people who share similar values as me. I love being able to help children and families attain decent living conditions that they deserve. And most of all, I love seeing the lovely children in our home grow and flourish into happy, healthy and educated youngsters with a bright future ahead.

What I do for Our Sansar ranges from hiring and managing the local staff, to organizing projects with volunteers, to day-to-day financial and administrative tasks that keep Our Sansar running. I do not get paid for the work I do for Our Sansar. As such I do have another paying job, but I devote much of my waking hours to helping street children.  

Prior to founding Our Sansar, I studied Japanese at the University of Warsaw and International Relations at the Open University. I also worked as a multilingual consultant in Japan for 3 years. I love listening to Leonard Cohen and cooking traditional Polish food.
