We have been home to many people, and the time has come to have our own, so we can welcome them. Are we counting on you to equip the House that will change the world?
The Transformers Movement is a Non-Governmental Organization for Development that exists to solve the problem of lack of civic and social participation in Portugal, stimulating volunteering, associativism and increasing awareness of the problem.
We have been working for 12 years with children and young people at risk, isolated seniors and with young people who want to develop in order to be the next leaders of their communities.
In recent years, we have also been transformed.
We were recognized as a Non-Governmental Organization for Development, we digitized our content, we signed work with the public and private sector, we shared impact studies that prove the relevance of our intervention, we were recognized by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation as a Reference Methodology for the Promotion of Competences in Children and Young People, we have already impacted more than 10,000 young people, we encourage more than 100 volunteer mentors every year.
The team has grown considerably and today we not only promote national volunteering, but student and youth associations and awareness of participation! We have been running the country training young people to be active agents in their communities and to assert themselves as the next generation of conscientious leaders.
We never had a house where we could receive our people. But we decided to take the risk and, starting in August, we will have Casa Transformers in Porto - a space where we can work together, where we will receive our young people, seniors and volunteers for training programs, celebrations, reflections and to think about what future together.
And we need you to equip the space!
Do we count on you?
