Project description

Primavera85 is an active social enterprise working in partnership with National Public Health System reaching around 250 families in its daily work, aimed at helping mentally and physically disabled people through educational and rehabilitation assistance. The overall objective of Primavera85 is a promotion of human development and social integration ensuring each person is able to exercise his/her rights avoiding exclusion, fostering tolerance and understanding, contributing to well-being and cohesion of the community. The Cooperative deals with various types of disability (physical, mental), severe or not. So, the activities proposed vary a lot, offering the volunteers a wide range of possible initiatives to develop, unleashing their creativity. Primavera85 is articulated in three main areas and each center hosts users with different levels of psycho-physical disabilities, autism or behavioural disturbances.
