We collaborate with the Novo Futuro Association to promote the balanced development of young people in Portugal
Education, health and nutrition for 75 children and young people living in residential homes
The children and young people hosted by the Novo Futuro Association have lived through long-term traumatic experiences, such as abandonment, abuse and physical and psychological mistreatment, which have affected their emotional development. Most of them have been deprived of a healthy diet, have had no access to proper medical care and did not go to school.
The association offers physical, emotional and social care in its 8 homes to 75 young people, aged between 10 and 21, who do not have a safe family environment. These individuals are supported by a specialized technical and educational team.
Novo Futuro works with the young people in three areas: in the area of health, specialized therapeutic support is offered as well as the necessary treatment for their complete emotional recovery. In the area of education, these children and young people are given the opportunity to continue their studies, their needs for school supplies are met, and improved access to computer resources enables them to do their homework. In addition, complementary, recreational, sports, cultural and educational activities are organized to enrich their education. In terms of nutrition, the residents in the homes are provided with a healthy diet, which is important for their balanced growth.
Since 2018, we have been collaborating with the association so that the youngsters receive the best care and can fully develop both physically and emotionally.
