Trokaki, Horas de Sonho

ORGANISATION BACKGROUND AND LOCAL CONTEXT

Horas de Sonho is a social solidarity cooperative, working in two central areas: i) family support, in particular children; and ii) community deve-lopment, focused in the areas of training disadvantaged people, employability and entrepreneurship. Carnide combines several neigh-bourhood districts comprised by Portuguese, African and Roma people with middle and upper middle class districts. Trokaki appears to be just a second-hand shop for exchanging items (clothing, toys, appliances), but it’s much more than that: it is an innovative tool in promoting social inclusion and reducing the impacts of poverty. Throughout the various stages of Trokaki (sorting, organizing event, contacts with entities, com-munication and dissemination, etc.) it is possible to support each person in his/her personal journey, through the combination of resources already mobilized. This reinforces each one as an active citizen for their development and their community. Trokaki provides the development of fundamental skills for the labour market and/or an easier access to services and clients.

  • Briefing on both project background and local context;
  • Preparation of a Trokaki opening;
