Integration of Venezuelan and Ecuadorian communities through mingas and artistical activities

It is important that the Neighbourhood Primero de Agosto gets an adequate physical space in good condition to be a meeting place and development of activities for the integration of children, older adults, LGBTIQ + population, which is part of the Venezuelan population and the host community that comes to this neighbourhood house. It is proposed that this infrastructure can provide a warmth, and secure environment and that the use of the internal and external physical spaces of the neighbourhood house can be organized by the directive, to promote cultural integration fairs; health and environmental fairs; training activities. Some of these activities may be managed through the CICS Project or developed directly by the board that manages the infrastructure. This space will respond in a differentiated way to the needs of Venezuelan refugee and migrant communities to promote their effective integration and will become spaces for citizen participation and the co-creation of actions to improve their living conditions.
