Project title


The goal of the project is to create conditions for training the profession of a barista for 5 migrants with disabilities from Belarus, Ukraine who are in Poland, through networking and mutual assistance on the basis of the Inclusive Barista Social Club Warszawa.  


After training as a barista, 5 project participants know how to brew coffee and serve customers at the Inclusive Barista Social Club Warszawa. They work together and help each other when needed.

The development of an international inclusive community of migrants who left for various political reasons (after the events in Belarus in 2020) from the countries of the former CIS, after the start of the war in Ukraine, are able to provide.


Purchased professional coffee equipment that allows you to train and adapt people with disabilities to the barista profession on the basis of the existing Inclusive Barista Social Club Warszawa. One of the functions of the club is the cafe Inclusive Barista Social Club Warszawa, an integration and educational platform for networking, mutual assistance and support, which are located on the territory of Poland.

Currently, migrants with disabilities experience difficulties when moving and legalizing, as well as when looking for work and employment in Poland, due to their own lack of awareness on the one hand and the unwillingness of most employers to help adapt a migrant with a disability to work.  The project aims to eliminate psychological barriers for people with disabilities and include them in a full social life in Poland society through training in the popular barista profession. The form of training for the new profession of a barista was chosen in connection with the growing popularity of coffee shops and the social component of this type of activity, which would allow people with disabilities to socialise and feel like full members of society. Previously, the project team has a successful experience in training more than 50 people with disabilities and employing 12 people with disabilities, the confirmation of the implementation of this project in Belarus is the existing social coffee-spaces with working inclusive employees.
