Too few places to feel safe

A snapshot of Ukrainian youth in Warsaw.

As the escalation of the war in Ukraine enters its third year soon, and as school-aged children from Ukraine face the 5th school year of disrupted education, we asked young Ukrainians (aged 14-19) living in Warsaw to tell us what life has been like for them as refugees over the last 18 months.

The attached snapshot assessment was conducted with our partner organisation GPAS who runs the youth club Spoko Café in Warsaw and has well established relations with Ukrainian youth. This gave us a unique opportunity to conduct Focused Group Discussions in a safe environment that help the youth to open and share with us their needs, priorities, challenges and future plans.
