Educational Project

The education and sensibilization of young people in relation to animals and enviroment is a crucial question for the society.
One of the objectives of our Association is to teach the young ones respect for animals and nature.

Some examples:

June 2011

Saturday 4th of June some students and their teacher Cátia from a secondary school 'Escola Secundária Fernão Mendes Pinto' in Pragal (the course on tourism) came to our shelter to deliver us stuff they arranged during a donation campaign they did in their school for the benefit of Bianca shelter.
On behalf of our dogs and cats we would like to thank them for this noble gesture.

January 2011

On January 2011, Bianca was presented in two schools near Sesimbra. On January 5th, we attend in 'Escola C+S da Quinta do Conde' and on January 20th in 'Escola Secundária de Sampaio'.

The students seems to like learning more about animals and we have a lot to tell. We tell them our daily basis in Biancas' Organization, our goal, what Biancas' fight for and remind women and men of tomorrow this animal cause is also a public sanitary cause.

At the end of November 2010 Bianca went to a kindergarden in Pedreiras near Sesimbra with two dogs. The children loved the dogs, gave them lots of cuddles and played. We loved it too.

We would also like to thank Dr. Liliana and Dr. Carmen from Sesimbra City Hall for their presence.

July 2009

This summer, with the cooperation of the Câmara Municipal (the municipality) we held a community project called “Young Holidays”.

The project involved visits of children and teenagers (aged from 8 to 12) in the shelter, every day for a few hours, different groups of children over a period of 3 weeks. In total we hosted around 250 children in our shelter.

They had the pleasure and the opportunity to be in contact with lovely dogs, take care of them, walk them, brush them, play with them.

The children were happy and the dogs were too.

Some children acquired a different view of animals, different from the one they used to have. Now they see animals as loyal friends and members of the family. Those future generations will treat the animals with love and respect.
