Banco de Recursos*, NGO Rosto Solidário

ORGANISATION BACKGROUND AND LOCAL CONTEXT

Rosto Solidário is a Portuguese NGOD located at Santa Maria da Fei-ra, in Portugal. It encourages the reuse of furniture, household applian-ces, clothing, among others. Rosto Solidário promotes social inclusion and community’s engagement, by receiving and distributing donated goods to families in a situation of greater vulnerability. It relies on the support of a technical team and a group of volunteers, who collect, sort, store and redistribute the products. The Resources Centre is a consolidated social response based on a strong partnership with other third sector institutions.

  • Briefing on both local context and project aims;
