Its residents gather together to dance, play games, drink and eat. Some make bonfires and chat outside, others play football, and traditional music floats in the air.

  • The Intercultural School in a Multicultural Society: Achieving Successful Integration in Poland 

In Poland, where international migrants make up 2.2 per cent of the total population, the number of migrant children attending schools continues to grow each year. This poses a challenge to Polish teachers who must learn how to effectively work with children from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds to help them to successfully integrate with their new community.

"The Intercultural School in a Multicultural Society", a three-year, country-wide project which IOM is implementing from 2010 to 2013, is estimated to cover some 7,000 beneficiaries, mainly Polish and migrant teachers and children, through activities that foster the understanding of and respect for different cultural groups.
