MOSTOSTAL ZABRZE S.A. financed the “Znicz” project, the aim of which was to implement a new form of vocational rehabilitation in WTZ by producing candles. As part of the project, a machine producing an input for a candle or wax with the necessary tooling was purchased. For 6 years WTZ charges have been able to organize fairs in the Company’s headquarters. During the fairs organized few times a year, the charges are given the opportunity to sell their products made during professional rehabilitation, including candles. The funds obtained in this way are used to purchase materials for further rehabilitation.
