Success stories

Level UP

Lyudmila, a 65-year-old retired lecturer from eastern Ukraine, is finding a sense of normality and hope for a better future thanks to her participation in project activation activities for seniors in Rzeszów. For her, the project’s Saturday meetings have become an important part of her life, bringing relief and optimism in difficult times. Her activism and gratitude for the opportunities the project offers her are an inspiring example of strength of spirit and adaptation in a new environment.

Kreatywna Pozytywka

An 8-year-old boy from the Kyiv area, who witnessed the horrors of war, closed himself off when he arrived in Przemyśl. However, thanks to his participation in the project’s workshops, during which he had the opportunity to express his feelings through art, he managed to overcome his trauma. His moving drawings, showing the fear of bombings and his subsequent images of peace, became a symbol of his regained hope and adaptation in a new, safe environment.

Bądzmy Razem Association

A beneficiary of the project, who was professionally active in Ukraine, encountered family difficulties after moving to Poland, which she overcame with the support of the project. Despite her personal challenges, she not only actively participated in the training for social assistants, but also helped to set up a refugee database in Tarnobrzeg and translate meetings. Her determination and willingness to help others, despite her own problems, is an inspiring example of strength and dedication.
