Due to the current situation in Belarus, the Association for Legal Intervention prepared a short information guide concerning the options to come to Poland, as well as rights and obligations
We support people with migration experience in navigating a new reality in Poland.
Bringing cultures and generations together
Having implemented integration activities for years, we are convinced that sharing ones own culture is as important in the proces of integration as learning a culture of a receiving society. Migrants gathered around Association for Legal Intervention come from rich cultures and are eager to present them to the Poles.To facilitate the proces of exchange, we create opportunities for the actors to come together: during cooking or art classes, lectures and visits to culturally or historically significant places not only personal ties are made, but also intercultural understanding is achieved. We work particularly closely with Polish senior citizens and engage them in various intercultural undertakings, thus contributing to an intergenerational exchange.
Empowering refugee children
While working day-to-day with refugees, we observe how important it is to work with asylum seeking children. Our efforts go into helping them integrate with the Polish society, empowering them, raising their self-esteem and giving them knowledge and skills that they will be able to use wherever they live in the future.
Our activities for children include: sewing and art classes (held together with seniors), as well as theatre workshops.We ring together migrant children and Polish senior citizens, these collaborations result in unique intercultural and intergenerational sharing and bonding.
Working with refugee women
An important part of our integration activities is working with refugee women. We run workshops based on art therapy, organize walks around Warsaw, visits in theaters or art galleries that help them get used to the new environment and the challenging situation, that they found themselves in.
Intercultural and intergenerational events
In order to contribute to the building of a diverse and open society, we regularly organize open events, such as: intercultural picnics or Christmas Eve parties. Migrants, seniors citizens, volunteers, employees and other guests spend time together integrating.
