Hummingbird spreads its wings to surrounding communities.
A recent development of the Hummingbird Project started last year during school holidays, Beija-Flor na Comunidade or Hummingbird in the Community, literally means that we take most of the activities from our Hummingbird Arts and Cultural Activity Centre to the children and young people in surrounding communities instead of them coming to us.
The programme is an important step towards implanting smaller nuclei in underprivileged communities, from where the populations have limited access to our regular Activity Centre, either due to distance, safety or lack of transport. Another important reason for the project is to facilitate the reproduction of our prevention methodology by youth community mobilisers and mentors trained at Hummingbird; Everyone a Changemaker.
