The Comics Anthology Virar a Página , brought together Portuguese screenwriters and designers, professionals and amateurs, around the desire to be an active part in the search for minimizing the negative consequences that the pandemic scenario left exposed.
In this sense, aware that there are several needs and fronts to fight the virus, we want to address all of our efforts in supporting the social protection action that the CAIS Association carries out. At a time when homeless people have less means and face the lack of passers-by to whom they sell CAIS magazines, this initiative aims to raise funds to help the institution in acquiring the necessary resources for them to continue to perform their functions.
With this project, national BD took an important step on a path that will only be concluded with the support of all of you.
Since its founding in 1994, CAIS's mission is to contribute to the global improvement of the living conditions of socially and economically vulnerable people, in situations of deprivation, exclusion and risk. The various projects that we develop have as main objective to promote the social integration of these people, through training methodologies to approach or return to the labor market, helping them to recover their self-esteem, skills and their rightful place in society.
The promotion of partnerships with companies, other for-profit and non-profit organizations, national and international, is also in the DNA of CAIS, fostering social responsibility through employability, creating and participating in knowledge sharing, innovation and entrepreneurship networks social. It was, therefore, with great gratitude that we became aware of the initiative of the Anthology of Comics to Turn the Page whose authors, aware of the social reality in which we live and that the recent pandemic has worsened, decided to design to support our organization.
Our motto, in recent years, has been "Everyone counts". This means, not only, that everyone has the right to a voice and a place in society, but also that we all have a duty to contribute to making this a reality. The gesture of the authors of this Anthology conveys it completely.
On behalf of CAIS, I would like to thank you most!
Conceição Cordeiro, Executive Director of the CAIS Association
