Our mission is to promote cooperation for local development through the safeguarding and valuation of heritage, culture, environment and sport, as a way of including the whole community, but with a special focus on people with disability and reduced mobility.

We encourage, through non-formal training, pedagogical activities for children, young people and adults with and without disabilities / reduced mobility, in order to promote initiative and cultivate entrepreneurship.

With our projects and activities we intend to provide seniors with an active and healthy aging, fighting against loneliness and social isolation.
