Warsaw based Nonprofit
We help refugee children from Ukraine
We support young people from orphanages by organizing workshops and offering individual consultations at the Warsaw Family Support Center
Refugee children are particularly stressed by instability and uncertainty. They miss their hometowns and they have to adapt to the constantly changing circumstances. We carry out regular activities to give them sense of safety and help them feel better. In collaboration with KIK, we fund and organize Polish classes at Ukrainian school in Warsaw.
Teachers and care takers
We are organizing Polish as a foreign language course for lectors – during summer they will be able to teach thousands of children and prepare them for a new school year. We are also working on Psycho-Social Support Course for teachers and care takers – it’s crucial that teachers working with Ukrainian children have basic skills to manage stress and emotional disregulation.
Life after foster care
Every year, about 2,000 adult pupils leave the walls of institutional orphanages. They are to start a new life in which they cannot find themselves. They are twice as likely to be unemployed as their peers, and 90% of them exhibit symptoms of PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder often seen in soldiers). Most do not believe in themselves.
