A team of 15 young people from Poland are in Northern Ireland this week to support our community building partnership with the Welcome Organisation.
They are joined onsite with young people from Northern Ireland’s Children’s Enterprise (NICE) to help give the Welcome Organisation’s centre on Townsend Street a facelift. The group have rolled up their sleeves and are working hard painting.
Earlier in the summer, 15 young people from NICE travelled with Habitat NI to Warsaw to support a similar project with Habitat Poland, converting an attic space into 7 flats for marginalised young men.
This initiative is supported by Erasmus and is an exciting opportunity to build relationships and understanding across communities and cultures while making a big difference to people in need. It aims to encourage young people to think critically about the world around them and become life-long active citizens who build bridges and challenge stereotypes.
