As part of the project, we will provide legal and organisational assistance to people with experience of migration in the Oława and Oleśnica counties of the Lower Silesia Province and the City of Wrocław. Since 2015, the number of migrants in Lower Silesia has been growing, the largest group of which are people from Ukraine. Only in the first quarter of 2021, the number of foreigners with valid residence permits in Poland increased by almost 5% compared to previous years. Our experience in working with migrants shows that their main problems include: low knowledge of the law, prolonged official procedures related to obtaining a residence permit in Poland, systemic discrimination in workplaces, offices and schools and insufficient competences of the teaching staff regarding work in a culturally diverse environment. We will conduct training for min. 540 people: activists, teachers and representatives of local government units. The topics of the training courses will concern project management, NGO management, civic activity, equality policies, civil rights, the functioning of local government units, the basics of migration law, prejudice motivated violence, and working with children with migration experience. We will provide legal assistance to min. 200 people with migration experience. We will implement a social campaign and elaborate a report on migrant-friendly solutions that can be used by institutions and local governments. The direct beneficiaries of the project will be: migrants, local activists, representatives of local government units from the Lower Silesia region, and teaching staff of Lower Silesian schools. The indirect recipients will be: local communities of the Lower Silesia region, local media, people observing the social profiles of our organisation.
