This volunteer project in Amarante aims to raise awareness among the international participants and the local population on social inclusion, mainly of young people with disabilities, as well as on fair trade, organic farming and environmental preservation.

The volunteers will take part in various activities: group dynamics; presentation of the city and the region; discussions on the project theme (objectives, tasks division); visit to the most important sites of the city; training on theatre performance and workshop on how to deal with differences; direct contact and work with a local NGO responsible for activities with local young people with disabilities; organize an event (theatre performance) involving both groups (project participants and local handicapped young people) to be presented to the local community (street performance, more than 500 people expected to attend).

Amarante is a small town in the North of Portugal, part of Porto district (60 km far from Porto, to the interior) with 12.000 inhabitants. It is quite a famous city for tourism, culture and wine production. Indeed it is quite near (18 km) to the Oporto wine region. It is crossed by Tâmega River (one of the rivers ending at Douro River that crosses Porto till the Atlantic ocean) and is in the valley of one of the most important Portuguese mountains, Marão (1450 m).

Project dates: July 3 - July 14, 2018
