Kilka słów o organizacji…
Association Amazonas was registered in 2004. to promote social inclusion, intercultural learning and healthy lifestyles through various aspects of Brazilian culture and the art of capoeira. We use capoeira as a method to encourage multiculturalism, development of creative and social potential of children, youth and adults, as well as improving the quality of life of individuals and society as a whole. The target groups of our activities are mostly young people with fewer opportunities and some of our regular programs are: school of capoeira and acrobatics, Festival of Brazilian culture, Amazonas summercamp, international workshops and events. A big focus in our work we are puting on youth and children with fewer opportunities as well as developing social programs based on inclusion.
1. Tribo Moderna – In this project we are working with kids who have behavioral problems, who cannot control their emotions and who feel excluded from society. Due to the variety of elements in capoeira and an emphasis on freedom of movement and creativity and lack of competition, trough capoeira we allow each individual to realize their potential through the aspects that fits them best.
2. Uključi S(v)E! – In this project we are promoting active participation of youth in society through involvement in volunteer activities (festivals, campaigns, media and digital activities, language classes, sport programs etc.), with a big focus of inclusion of the youngsters who are facing different obstacles as economical, social or medical obstacles.
Also, Amazonas team coordinates the projects in the frameworks of Youth in Action/Erasmus+ project of European Commission. Till now, we did one youth exchange, one training course and five long-term EVS projects.
During ESC project, volunteers will be involved in 3 groups of activities. First two groups of activities are focused on the local community and third group of activities is focused on personal and organisational development. Furthermore, two volunteers will be more engaged in social project by working with children and two will promote social work of organisation by involment in media activities.
