We Are with You – Together for Ukraine__

Implementation period: 01.08.2022 - 30.12.2023

The key actions of Foundation Ukraine within the “We Are with You – Together for Ukraine” project involve providing comprehensive support and integration for migrants and refugees from Ukraine living in the Lower Silesian regions, especially in Bolesławiec, Wałbrzych, and Jelenia Góra.

Key Project Objectives:

  • Establishing and intensifying contacts and cooperation between relevant institutions in Poland and the Czech Republic to exchange information and experiences, initiate discussions, and develop long-term mechanisms for dealing with refugee/migration issues in the future.
  • Providing direct assistance and comprehensive support according to the current and diagnosed needs of Ukrainian refugees.
  • Facilitating the adaptation and integration of refugees, especially Ukrainian children, in their new environment.

The achievement of specific objectives will be carried out by developing appropriate long-term mechanisms that will enable a timely and adequate response to the refugee/migration crisis. It also involves providing properly tailored support to individuals in crisis situations to achieve the main goal.

To achieve the mentioned project goals and objectives we took the following actions:


Providing specialized consultations for migrants in Lower Silesia, especially in the following areas:

  • general administrative and integration advice. Consultants will provide information on immigration law, residency legalization procedures (including completing applications correctly), health insurance, renting accommodation, etc.;
  • lawyer consultations: e.g., labor law, civil law, administrative law, family law, etc.;
  • career advisor consultations (including mobile consultations), including assistance with job search, CV writing, developing professional skills;
  • psychologist consultations, psychosocial support.

The project will organize half-day camps specialized on language learning, adaptation and integration (a total of 12 sessions) for migrant and refugee children from Ukraine. The half-day camps aim to combine summer recreation for Ukrainian children and youth with intensive Polish language learning.

During the half-day camps, children will have the opportunity to participate in artistic, sports, culinary workshops, and excursions. Daily Polish language classes for all participants are also planned within the half-day camps. The project will implement four-week sessions in each region, two each during the summer vacation and winter holidays. Thanks to the half-day camps, at least 250 children will be able to spend a pleasant vacation, make new friends, and combine it with intensive Polish language learning.


The project will organize Polish language courses for foreigners, especially for Ukrainian refugees. A total of 9 Polish language courses will be conducted in Lower Silesia – 3 in each region: Wałbrzych, Bolesławiec, and Jelenia Góra.

Language courses will allow 130 migrants to improve their language skills, which can directly translate into their potential for finding employment, adapting to a new place of residence, and integrating with local residents.

The lessons will be conducted by qualified lecturers with experience in teaching Czech and Polish languages. Classes will be held at various times, including afternoon-evening hours, to allow participation for working or studying individuals as well. The courses will be tailored to the standards defined by the Council of Europe (CEFR) and correspond to levels A0-C2. Participants will receive a certificate upon completion of the course along with a level description.

The courses will take place in various locations in the Lower Silesian region on the Polish side and various locations within Hradec Králové on the Czech side.
