      multicultural dialogue, local culture, diversity, tolerance,
      history, conflicts from the past that remained and have
      influence nowadays.

      not the only one.
     Each project involve different problem which is connected
      with a culture, nations, conflicts and try to explain it and
      make youths understand it in the simpler way. It’s some kind
      of a chain, the foundation make the first link and the youths
      explore it themselves making the researches, talking with
      their grandparents, visiting archives, being curious…Nobody is
      forced to do something. The youths come and want to do this
      kind of work, focus on the past, history of their family which
      is directly connected with history of their region. The
      organization try to show that different doesn’t mean worst.

      Polish, Lithuanian, Russian, Jewish, Bosnian, Serbian and

       old Mostar bridge. With Serbian, Bosnian, Muslim and British
       youths we tried to reconstruct it. Our work was based on
       dialogue, peacebuilding, tolerance, religion, history, politics
       which were the reasons of this conflict. We tried to
       understand it and not to say whose is the fault. The most
       difficult thing after the conflict is the lack of confidence
       between people. We tried to avoid it and build some kind of a
       new friendship between “children of the war” who actually
       were the victims. They haven’t got any choice, they were
       forced to take part in the conflict even if they didn’t want. As
       a group we also realized many different kind of cultural
       projects played out with European Program “Youth” especially
       “Youth in action”. We realized projects like “Bounded with a
       place”. It was twelve meetings with Polish and Lithuanian
       artists. We made the same number of paintings that shows
       the culture of our regions, religion, history which is very
       fragile because of the war between our nations. We wanted
       especially to work together without any borders, prejudices.
       At the end of our project we published some kind of calendar
that includes all these pictures, photos, sculptures that we
made. It is a thing that we hope will measure only the
peacetime. We donated it for a local administration, schools,
friends, our families, almost everyone! Another project that
we realized was called “Cultural Coffee House”. It was a place
open for everyone during the holidays. Youths from our city
could stay there watching the movies, having discussions,
participating in artist’s meeting, enjoy their free time in more
ambitious and creative way. We done also the workshops with
the children. They sang with us old chants, we told them
stories about our city, we painted together. It was very
challenging experience cause we were the teachers! After this
project everyone said that Sejny need this kind of place but
for whole year. It was a success hearing some kind of words.

OBJECTIVES
     SPIN Association is a non profit, non governmental
      organisation for development whose aim is to promote youth
      activities, international trainings, exchange and cooperation
      projects, especially targeted at          young with fewer
      opportunities in order to promote awareness and foster
      human rights, tolerance, mutual understanding and peace.
     SPIN puts a strong focus in the intercultural dimension of its
      projects as a means raising awareness in its beneficiaries and
      in the public opinion in general that we are all part not only of
      our local community but also of Europe and the world.
      Providing access to our activities to people with fewer
      opportunities – particularly young people – in order to
      facilitate their social inclusion is also one of our main
      commitments.
     A key aspect of our work is the promotion of voluntary service
      as an instrument to stimulate young people's active
      involvement of their capacities and their communities, be it
      considered on a local basis or on a broader, international
      dimension. We truly believe in a solid European cooperation
      through the spreading of the volunteering spirit and mutual
      understanding among youth. Our organization is determined
      to empower young people and especially those pertaining to
      marginalized social groups, with disabilities or facing other
      forms of social exclusion, in order to widen their horizons,
      develop their personal and professional growth and expand
      their European awareness and active citizenship.


ACTIVITIES
     Promotion of international activities for young people,
       especially International youth exchanges on the field of
       human rights, culture and arts and sustainable development;
       and EVS projects (both sending and hosting), as well as
       training courses about interculturality and human rights.
TARGET
     The main target group is Young people aged 15-30 years old.
       However, as our office is based in a socially marginalized
       neighbourhood of Lisbon, we are also especially focused on
       working with young people with fewer opportunities, as
       second generation immigrants from African and Roma origin,
       who face discrimination and shortage of opportunities in the
       labour market, frequently dropping out from school and facing
       a lack of motivation for searching solutions to improve their
       situation besides the ones offered in the neightbourhood
       (such as selling drugs and stealing). These young people are
       very difficult to work with, as they easily quit the activities
       and fight among each other(between Roma youngsters and
       youngsters from Green Cape and Guinea); they are all
       belonging to families which knowadays have portuguese
       nationality and which are being supported by the Local
       municipality, which has given them housing; but we believe it
       is missing education and work opportunities for the
       youngsters, as they live in conflict.
     Besides these youngsters from the neighbourhood, we are
       also often contacted by other young immigrants resident in
       Portugal studying at the highschool and University as well as
       portuguese nationals from every place in the country, who
       come to participate in the activities we promote.
