Constructing houses for refugee's families

📅 8 - 18 May 2020
📍 IMA, #Portugal
Organized by Para Onde?

LAR project is a solution for families of refugee’s and migrants who have finished government funded integration programs, and are left without sufficient financial support and still haven’t found stable jobs or homes. We wish to ensure that we provide work, training and housing for every member of the family - conditions for them to want to stay long-term or permanently in Portugal. At this moment we are finishing the rebuilding works at the houses, to make sure these families will have a proper place to call home.

What makes volunteering with us so special?

We see volunteering as a way of achieving social change.

Bringing people from around the world together to do something practical and learn about each other is a great start. As an IVP volunteer you should be ready to ask and be asked; to question and explain your values and those of your society; to share information and to teach and be taught.

Our activities encourage understanding, promote discussion and an appreciation of the problems that different communities face in their struggles for social justice and environmental harmony.
