afpop Community Centre


There are many initiatives which facilitate the integration of foreigners into their local community and which are designed to promote understanding, communication and community spirit.  These schemes are often created and run by community minded individuals, whose only aim is to create a more tolerant environment based on understanding and friendship.

The aim of this part of the Community section is to enable those who are running or trying to create such schemes to publicise their activities and encourage others in the area to become involved. None of the schemes included here are run by afpop, although afpop Members are involved in many of them. The schemes are listed in Câmara areas only for ease of reference only and this does not mean that they are run or funded by any Câmara.
