Vitamina Natureza aims to give children freedom in a natural environment. Every week, rain or shine, groups of kids wear wellies, get their hands dirty and play freely in nature.

It is our understanding that children, in this increasingly global society, suffer more and more from sedentary lifestyle… locked at home…. computers… solitary games and, how often, an overprotection against what childhood justifies and must include.

We know how good it is to get dirty, explore, jump, run freely, obviously without taking major risks and with the supervision of adults and always with a view to making children happy, ensuring them different days, fun and lots of sharing and always based on a greater mission, which involves instilling in them values and a sense of responsibility, in which they themselves are active and decisive agents, even in the planning of daily activities.

But we also know parents' concerns…the fear of the flu, colds and other bad bugs…

Now with the arrival of winter, we don't want to stop playing!! But for that, we need to create new conditions so that our children, after playing in the mud and rain, can change their clothes and get warm.

It is in this sense that we need everyone's precious help. As a very old African proverb says “ It takes an entire village to raise a child” .

Right now the most urgent needs are:

  • Increase the covered space of our shed;
  • Insulate the shed so that we can place a warm salamander;
  • Create a bathing area.

Thanks to this giant village <3

Somos uma grande família

About the author

Associação Vitamina Natureza, descends from a project created in 2014, the National Association of Social Animators – ANAS, by the initiative of João Morgado and whose main objective was to return children to nature and promote free play. We kept it that way for 5 years.

With the development of this project, they came to join Sílvia Barros, sociologist and with vast experience in the pedagogical/educational area, and Rui Ferreira, with extensive experience in the agricultural areas in the technical and pedagogical aspects.

From the joining of experiences and desires, this new project - Vitamina Natureza was born. Contributing to the happy and healthy development of our children is our main objective. This being a non-profit association under private law.

Com espírito de entreajuda
