Refugees have a voice! – strengthening the rights of migrants

Project Promoter: Fundacja Emic
Proposal: 1st thematic call
Co-financed from the program: 102 461,92 EUR
Partners: Szkoła Podstawowa im. 16 Pułku Ułanów Wielkopolskich w Grupie
Duration time: 01.12.2021-30.09.2023

The project is implemented in partnership with the Primary School in Grupa near Grudziądz, attended by children living in the nearby Centre for Foreigners. The aim of the project is to provide foreigners with legal assistance in matters related to the refugee procedure and to develop the competences of the public administration staff related to servicing clients from abroad. Activities supporting this process will be addressed to school environments and the host society. The project responds to the following problems: the low percentage of people receiving international protection, the lack of interest on the part of decision-makers in educating children with migration experience, the lack of support for public administration staff in dealing with migrants, and insufficient activities promoting human rights in the context of migration and multiculturalism at the regional level. Within the project we provide legal counselling, employ an intercultural assistant at school, conduct training on multiculturalism for offices having contact with people with migration experience. We also undertake advocacy activities lobbying for changes in procedures concerning the organisation of life of people with migration experience. We will also carry out three networking panels for multicultural schools. The special groups in the project are people living in the Centre for Foreigners in Grupa and youth attending the Primary School in Grupa. Some activities have a supra-regional range. The project is implemented between December 2021 and September 2023.
