Empower the youth.
Last Friday, around 20 girls and boys from Porto dos Cavalos community participated in the workshop: “Vojo Brazil: amplifying Quilombola voices through mobile phones”.
The main aim is to empower young Brazilians and help them identify and violence they in their communities, and take proactive action against it. Five “quilombola” communities are thus far engaged in the Vojo Brazil project: Bananeiras, Martelo, Porto dos Cavalos, Maracanã and Praia Grande.
Fredson Santana, one of the participants in the Vojo Brazil training, describes the initiative as “fundamental to the development of marginalized communities.”
