To produce chocolate candies and other delicacies, master chocolate makers (adults with intellectual disabilities) need a space dedicated to production, to make their dream come true.

The Choc Choc Chocolate Project appears in pursuit of the intervention objectives set out in the strategic plan of AFSD - Cavalo Azul and in light of current legislation, for the Center for Training and Inclusion Activities, which seeks to facilitate the referral of Persons with Disabilities and Incapacity (PDI) for appropriate internal or external socio-professional integration programs, based on their individual characteristics and potential. The need for this project is essentially justified because People with Intellectual Disabilities have abilities and skills that society does not see as potentially useful, which is why these types of projects promote inclusion, an added value in the surrounding community and with an impact on the lives of each of these people.

In this sense, we would like to purchase a container and adapt it for the production of chocolate candies. Given the real estate speculation, it is not possible for us to rent a space in the community and, with the container, we would be able to meet the essential conditions to realize the dream of people with intellectual disabilities - having a space to produce their delicious chocolate candies.
