Currently, the foundation activities include:
- Creative cafe – Mondays 10-12pm
Creative cafe is a coffee morning for the women living in a shelter for homeless women and children. The aim of this project is to get to know the women, build up relationships and to look at how we can help them and how they can get involved with our activities and help others. With the help of volunteers we organise various activities including arts and crafts, boardgames and exercising. As part of this project we plan with the help of the participates to organise afternoon activities for children attending the local youth center for children from difficult backgrounds.
Our community centre at ul. Kordeckiego 5, opened in September 2017. Here we organise many projects for homeless people and foreigners. Please see below for information regarding what events we organise.
• Polish cafe for foreigners – Mondays 7-9pm.
This is an informal meeting for foreigners to help them improve their Polish through conversation and games. The structure of the meeting is: half an hour is a time for chatting and explaining what we will be learning – the participants can speak in whatever language is comfortable for them (usually Polish or English), then we have an hour of games and conversation where all participants are only allowed to speak Polish and following this we end with a time for questions and discussion. We currently have two learning tables one for beginners and one for intermediate to advanced learners. The aim of the meeting is help foreigners living in and around Katowice to improve their Polish and integrate further into Polish society. It also gives the Polish participants a chance to get to know people from various countries and culture through the common language of Polish.
