awakening is our middle name!
Why we do it? We want to spread awareness about the major issues that our generation had to deal. We feel the need of more information and actions that embrace more people around causes that matter. Our main awareness projects are:
Jagruthi means transformation and evolution in hindi. It’s the motto of this project to promote awareness movements for the Portuguese population, especially the youngsters, to realities that exist in developing countries and also in the developed world. We choose one main topic per year and organize conferences, flashmob’s, workshops, actions on the field, and many more activities related to it. It’s about:
//› Youth unemployment
//› Poverty, dignity and self-esteem
//› Prevention of Std’s
//› Genital Mutilation and other honor crimes
