A Squad of Causes - We create bridges and break down barriers between children / young people and PSP agents.
Gira no Bairro Project - A Squad of causes and opportunities, which enables the education and inclusion of children, youth and the community with Public Security Police Officers. The value we need? € 10,000, which will make all the difference in our mission, as it will allow us to purchase bicycles, protective equipment, computers, artistic and recreational-pedagogical materials, as well as tickets for diversified activities that will give young people different opportunities to build and discover. In this squad ... we learn side by side, give hugs, help each other, build together, share smiles and much more! Join your world to ours… I & You changed the world! Thanks
About the author
Mundos de Papel and the Public Security Police have been promoting, in partnership and since June 2019 in Oeiras, a pilot and innovative project , which aims to strengthen relations between the PSP and the community , namely with children and young people from different backgrounds. disadvantaged socio-economic sectors. This perspective is pioneering, as it develops within the police station itself and integrates PSP agents who daily participate in the project's activities, interacting with young people. The project has contributed to demystifying prejudices, maintaining security, preventing risky or deviant behaviors, strengthening personal and social skills, and in general, educating about law and citizenship. So far, more than 350 activities have been developed (inside and outside the police station and also online, due to the pandemic), and involved more than 100 young people, 40 PSP agents, dozens of families, the local community and several partners (Centro Educativo Father António Oliveira, among others), causing a very positive impact. However, the project still lacks regular financial support, which guarantees its stability and long-term continuity. For the continuity of a highly innovative project, for the possibility and interest in its replication to other squads in the country, help us to continue and to do more and better every day. Help build more and more consistent bridges between security forces and the community!
