PARTNERS / Beyond Borders Foundation

The main goal of the Foundation is to promote and facilitate integration of migrants in Polish society through education, cooperation, empowerment, and advocacy. The Foundation provides a consultation point, where foreigners can get a consultation on issues of legal stay and work in Poland, Polish tax and social security systems, and details about the labour market. Polish and English language courses are opened for migrants and their Polish spouses/partners. Some of the Foundation’s most important initiatives are cultural activities – film screenings and discussion clubs, theatrical and literary workshops, and common celebrations of holidays. All these activities are open for migrants from all around the world who live in Warsaw. In 2011 and 2012 the project “Be my guest – (not only) Polish lunch” has been organized. The common meal of Poles and foreigners in a family atmosphere is a great opportunity to get to know each other better as well as Polish and foreign culinary and cultural traditions.
