OUR MISSION: The mission of Barka IE is to provide severely excluded Eastern European migrants with the opportunity for reconnection and social reintegration. We can support individuals within Barka Network projects in Poland, help them return to their families or support them in addressing their addictions and going into rehab.
In our migrants’ support projects, we work in teams of two people: a leader and an assistant. A leader is a person who has personal experience with homelessness and addiction, that is combated and rehabilitated within the Barka Network educational and community programs. The assistant is a person who knows a foreign language, has a formal education (e.g a degree in social work, psychology) and provides support to the leader. This method of work proved to be very effective in London, Dublin, Hamburg and Utrecht.
