Orphanages in Poland

1 Oct 2011 #61
I am currently in Poland and with a few weeks to spare was interested in volunteering in an orphanage, or childcare, or iin some sort of educational capacity. I am a qualified Primary School teacher. Does anyone know if this is possible, starting in a week or two? Any help much appreciated :)

Are you interested in coming to Poznan?

I could sort you out with a placement in a primary school, starting as early as next week - I'd be more than happy to help you out with this :)

I honestly think it's wonderful you are offering your assistance, to help needy children. Thank you so much for being such a caring and giving human being.

Hi, I'm a psychologist in a Children's Home (orphanage) in Oświęcim (southern Poland). We have a facebook "fanpage" at There you can read about our needs, contact me by private messages or leave your questions on our wall. Thanks :)

Dear sir.

Are you still in Poland?

I am a member of a church having too much used childrens clothes to handle, and would love to fill a truck and trailer to give them away to a worthy cause...

Due to cost involved in driving, we would love to know of maybe an orphanage or charity project for instance for poor families or street children close to German border or harbor city from Sweden?

We are experienced in this kind of work and have travelled to Ukraine, Romania, Moldova and Belarus in the past, but this load we have now have not yet been sponsored by anyone, so we will drive it on our own cost, thus the need for shorter driving distance.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Merged:Adopting, would like info on Polish orphanages please.

Hi, my husband and I live in France (I'm British he is French), we have 2 daughters (almost 9yrs and 6yrs) and would like to adopt 3 siblings/children, aged 5 and under.

We are going through our adoption application at the moment, and should be approved by Christmas 2012.
As my paternal grandparents were Polish, we are interested in adopting via Poland, but have been told that to do this via the French agencies, it would cost €8k per child (=24k!!!!). We were hoping by arranging our own travel arrangements and staying with family, we could bring the costs we would basically be arranging our own matching/adoption (if legally possible?). Therefore, it would be great if we could be in contact with an someone from an orphanage, so we could be advised on the process/costs/legalities etc.

Does anyone have any contact information for an orphanage, please?
Thank you <3

I see that this post is old and not one posted here recently, but I want to ask you for a website or address of orphanage homes in Krakow.

I moved to Krakow with my husband 6 months ago and we will be staying here for probably a year more. I would like to employ my time helping children at the orphanage, for God's glory.

I am a Christian and I was adopted when I was 6 months old. It is a privilege for me to able to help and care and love these children.

Please contact me through pm if you have any information about orphanage homes in Krakow.

Merged:Looking for people in orphanages in Lebork region

I represent a support and advocacy network for people raised in Australia,s 800 plus orphanages and childrens Homes.
Recently we were contacted by a lady who has lived in Perth, WA for over 30 years.
she was in a Polish orphanage in Lebork wojewodztwo,Gdansk.

She is looking for other people who were in this orphanage and she also wants to know if the Polish government have given compensation to children abused and neglected in their institutions.

Three states in Australia have paid compensation / redress to abused children WA, Qld and Tasmania.

If anyone can assist me I would be most grateful.
Best wishes and Hooroo

Merged: Children's homes in Poland?

Hi all,

Here in the UK i work as a Children's Support Worker in residential settings.

I was wondering if anyone could tell me what the children's homes are like in Poland or if anyone has experience working in them?

Also do they have agency's over there what contract staff out to the homes when they are short staffed, needing a waking night etc or are they all government run and funded?

Ever since Poland joined the EU, it has become quite difficult for US citizens to adopt Polish children, especially healthy infants. There are programs that facilitate the adoption of children with health or developmental problems, or older children. Even then, the requirements are quite stringent.

Here's one such organization:

We would like to adopt, and have the certification.
Any info?

Yes,. of course. I hope you are not a representative of a certain scam group which promise a donation but demands to obtain an account number with passwords beforehand????
