Social inclusion - II

Children from the shanty surrounding our new community base, now have more constructive alternatives to the streets during out-of-school hours, here enjoying a break during the percussion and capoeira workshops.


Hopefully our youth multipliers will reach most of their objectives such as:


·Social inclusion: youngsters who feel more confident in the future and capable of building their lives;

·Improvement in the quality of family life through increased closeness and dialogue between parents and children;

·Better school attendance, with an effective participation in the school's activities;

·Young people looking to live off a legitimate income earned by doing a honest and dignified job;

·Police that supports preventive and community work;

·Real choices in terms of leisure activities in the area, through the activities promoted by the new Community Base and the Hummingbird Cultural Activity Centre;

·Territorial democracy so people from different regions can move freely;

·A group of strong, solid and motivated youngsters that provides a new positive example and spread their values throughout the community.
