Project goals

The aim of the project is to integrate and counteract the exclusion and discrimination of migrant women living in three communes near Warsaw: Marki, Izabelin, and Podkowa Leśna.

Activities

The aim of the project is to integrate and counteract the exclusion and discrimination of migrant women living in three communes near Warsaw: Marki, Izabelin, and Podkowa Leśna. These municipalities are often chosen by foreigners and foreigners as a more affordable housing option while working in the capital. Thanks to the project activities, we want to involve the "new neighbors" even more in the life of the local community and we have broken the model of treating the place of life as a "bedroom". In cooperation with three local schools (one school from each municipality), we will conduct comprehensive training activities for the teaching staff and student community, and together we will develop SCHOOL STRATEGIES FOR SUPPORTING CULTURAL DIVERSITY. Each school will be supported by an intercultural assistant. Students will be able to take part in intercultural workshops conducted by our trainers. We will also take actions to improve the competences of local government officials in the area of ​​integration of the migrant community, incl. through training and publication of the LOCAL INTEGRATION MODEL. We will organize INFORMATION AND ADVISORY POINTS for foreigners, where they will be able to receive legal and integration support. Meetings on legalization of stay and other important issues for foreigners will be held. We will also implement the THROUGH SPORT TO INTEGRATION component - there will be sports integration picnics, especially aimed at young people, and social campaigns.
