description of organisation

The Ararajuba Onlus was born in Udine in 2011, with the objective of intensifying and making relationships among people and countries, especially between Brasil and Italy, stronger. In fact, Ararajuba Onlus gives all necessary information to everyone who is interested in the culture and in the relationships between these two countries. Moreover the association offers several services in order to make these Italo-Brasilian links easier in every sphere (culture, diplomacy, commerce etc.).The Ararajuba Onlus provides listening services and it organizes seminars, language, dance (capoeira) and music courses, as well as a rich range of musical and socio-cultural events. Our major projects are: 1) Recycling project, whose objective is to teach the importance of taking care of the environment in which we live. It is fundamental to teach young people the need to preserve our environment and the value of recycling. In this way they will feel involved and could become volunteers of our association. Currently we are working in some schools in our region, FVG (Friuli-Venezia-Giulia), by promoting some workshops on recycling and handcraft objects made of recycled materials. Furthermore we will distribute more than a thousand of small trash bags to place on cars’ gearstick, in order to avoid people from throwing waste outside through the cars’ window and in this way helping to preserve the environment.2) Street Angels project, in which we collect food, water, clothes and blankets in order to distribute them to the many people in need in our region, especially in Udine.We are also working with other associations in the international cooperation field and at this moment we are waiting for the answer of our region regarding a project to build a kindergarten in the south of Brazil for children living in slums. We think that in modern society the meeting between people can defeat intolerance, promote individual well-being and serve as foundation of a better condition of life for everybody, especially in this historical moment, in which existing conflicts undermine the concept of peaceful coexistence. The Ararajuba Onlus Association work so that dialogue and exchange between cultures will always be favoured, by providing information, facilitating meetings and discussions, and promoting an engagement in social activities.Thanks to the awareness of each of us, the Ararajuba Onlus Association believes that a better world is possible:• reduction of discrimination and violence• reduction of illiteracy• active participation to preserve the environment and education to energy saving, because personal wellness can not be separated from that of the environment• help those in need• promotion of international collaborationsWe don't have a specific target group, as our association works with people from different ages, cultures and backgrounds.

This organisation is accredited to run projects under Erasmus+ Volunteering and the European Solidarity Corps.
