Start date: Jul 6, 2015,
End date: Jul 6, 2016
Our project is taking place in the Podlaskie region of Poland, with the coordinating and planning centre in Bialystok, in the
DIALOGUE Foundation. This project is the continuation of the project ”Working in reception centers for
refugees/ raising social awareness in the area of human rights and refugees”, which has been run successfully since 2009.
With this application, we want to invite four volunteers to continue the activity. Their activity will last 9 months, i.e. 275 days.
The participating countries, apart from Poland, will be Spain, France, Germany and Italy. Together with the coordinating
organization, there will be 6 organizations involved. The volunteers will work in the kindergarten for refugees’ children, with
the assistance of the kindergarten teacher and the coordinator they will organize extra classes for refugee teenagers and
adults. The classes will be compatible with the volunteers’ hobbies and qualifications and will be aimed at organizing free
time for children, teenagers and adults, involving them in active participation in social life, integrating with the Polish and
international society. Apart from working in the centre, the volunteers will visit primary schools, junior high schools, high schools, universities and specialistic institutions throughout the region of Podlaskie, teaching lessons about human rights, stereotypes and refugees, aiming at raising the society’s awareness of the refugee issue. They will also design their own activities to reach the aim of the project and help prepare integration events. Informal learning methods, like discussion, presentation, exchange of ideas, opinions, training combined with discussion of the issue, tandem learning, learning by doing, individual and group initiatives, will be dominating throughout the project. The effect of the project will be the development of intercultural dialogue, raising awareness of the refugee issue among the participants and recipients of the project, increasing the level of knowledge and competence of both participants and recipients. Additional effect will be increasing the visibility of the ERASMUS+ Programme in the region.
