Holydays for All

..to be travellers, not just tourists !

An innovative project that highlights the inclusion of people with intellectual, relational or psychical disabilities and that encourages meaningful life experiences in informal contexts.

The prerequisites are the value of autonomy and that of experimenting social situations full of meanings.

We want to provide the fulfilment of a holiday where the individuals are active protagonists of their own time and where they can increase their interpersonal skills and knowledge of the world.

Where?

In the Algarve, in the south of Portugal: a true paradise made of beaches, characteristic little towns to explore, delicious traditional food, unexplored nature and ancient cultural traditions.

How does it work?

This service is tailor-made according to the needs of every single group. Every Association, Cooperative or group will be receiving specific consultation before departing regarding the following topics:

  • Choice of dates and of the different combinations of suitable means of transportation
  • Choice of a suitable accommodation (AirB&B, Hotel or similar)
  • Arrangement of the program according to your needs

During your stay, you will be guaranteed to be escorted and supervised in all the activities that will take place.
We require three preliminary Skype meetings at which you will receive all the necessary information and during which you will also have the chance to express your needs, communicate your desires and ask questions.
We will visit the beaches, explore the neighborhood market, taste the local treats, attempt to take on some Portuguese words, always keeping the importance of the personal growth of every participant as a background of the whole experience.
