Ocalenie Foundation, or Rescue Foundation, helps refugees, immigrants and repatriates build a new life in Poland.
Ocalenie Foundation was founded in the year 2000. The foundation supports migrants in integrating into society and their personal development. It is working towards a cross-cultural dialogue and strengthening the community.
It strives to ensure equal rights for all and to make sure that all people may live in dignity.
That is how they describe their work:
We help immigrants: we run a Help Centers for Foreigners in Warsaw and Łomża, where we offer free Polish lessons, carry out adaptation and integration support programs, and look for housing for our clients. We also run a youth center for children of refugees in Łomża
We raise public awareness: we hold workshops about refugees, anti-discrimination, and integration. We engage volunteers and organize community-integrating events, and take the floor in public debates.
We work with schools, colleges, public institutions, companies, and international organizations.
