Intercultural dialogue

Hosting organisation: Ocalenie Foudnation

Project starts: August 15th 2016

Project ends: May 14th 2017

Deadline: 30/06/2016

Place: Warsaw


Since the beginning of the refugee crises in Europe, our organization received a large number of complaints from foreign people (including asylum-seekers/refugees/immigrants) who is living in Poland. Majority of them declare that experienced an aversion, acts of violence and different types of discrimination. The main reason of such situation is the lack of impartial information about asylum seekers/refugees/immigrants in polish social media, whipping up internal situation by official authority and a low level of intercultural dialogue in polish society.

There are three main project objectives:

  1. Provide volunteers with an opportunity to learn methods of successful promotion of multiculturalism and develop their communication, critical thinking and social perceptiveness skills, that are crucial for the work with groups at risk of social exclusion.
  2. Raise awareness and tolerance of polish society to asylum-seekers/refugees/immigrants and support intercultural dialogue.
  3. Make a contribution to social inclusion of asylum-seekers/refugees/immigrants into Polish society.
