We have successfully completed a program implemented jointly with the Warsaw City Hall, which aimed to help children and youth from Belarusian families assimilate in Warsaw schools. Thanks to a grant from the Authority, the Foundation has provided comprehensive care for Belarusian and foreign children and young people aged 6-18 staying in Poland. This is a difficult age for all young people. Younger children adapt more easily to a new environment, conditions, learning the language is easier for them. For adolescents, often traumatized by parental arrest and insecurity, finding their way in the new reality is a serious problem. The Foundation directed two qualified Cultural Assistants to 8 Warsaw schools. Each of them spent one day a week in a different school. About 80 children were assisted. The main task of the assistants was to support the Belarusian/Russian-speaking children in their adaptation in the new school, as well as to provide linguistic support to the students and teachers for communication during their studies.
The program received a positive response from the young people with whom our assistants worked, but thanks also came from school principals and teachers. For them, too, this is often a new problem, and many schools do not have enough qualified people who can work with children who find themselves in this situation. Now we hope to continue the program in the settlement of the next edition of the competition.
