Meet our charities of the month
If our common goal is reached, Critical Software and Critical TechWorks will donate money to these charities
Grupos de Vida Social Apoiada
Grupos de Vida Social Apoiada (GVSA - Groups for a Supported Social Life) is a project founded in 2010 by the ‘O Fio de Ariana’ cooperative.
Its mission is to provide opportunities for people with disabilities to develop personal and social skills by creating stable and small groups of friends. The project does this with the help of volunteers, who assist in building the friendship groups. Participants can enjoy a range of fun activities, with the purpose of giving them the skills to thrive in everyday life. The GVSA volunteers are generally the same age as the participants and take a proactive role in leading their individual groups. At the same time, they assist the cooperative’s therapists to manage the group on meetings and activities in a way that abides by its mission of supporting those with additional needs to flourish.
Our Critical Fit donation will cover the activities of 7 volunteers in the existing groups across the academic year 2021/2022, as well as fund 3 training sessions over the same period.
