  1. Dianova Portugal at Social Stock Exchange Project 2009 DIANOVA PORTUGAL PROJECT THE LEARNING AND ENTERTAINMENT CENTRE FOR DEVELOPMENT “EDUCATION IS THE BEST PREVENTION” CONTEXT Portuguese society is facing serious social issues, such as poverty, lack of education infrastructures, violence and addictions. Dianova bases its action upon the belief that, with the appropriate aid, every individual may find within themselves the resources that will enable their personal development and ease the path towards social integration. Dianova is based upon the values of Commitment, Solidarity, Tolerance and Internationality. The project “Education is the Best Prevention” hopes to provide answers and solutions to issues such as: crisis of values, escalating risk behaviours (which may or may not be related to substance abuse), which include teenage pregnancy, transmission of STDs, road deaths, the increase of juvenile delinquency, lack of quality time spent with family (parents focusing more and more on their careers), among others. PROJECT Solid family ties and a close involvement of parents in their child’s education: these are two factors that significantly reduce a child’s risk of becoming involved with drugs. The creation of a space which allows for educational activities for both parents and children acts in the very root of the issue of substance abuse. The Learning and Entertainment Centre for Development has been conceived as a space for personal development and integration, where parents and children are allowed to exchange ideas and share experiences in a constructive manner, as well as to develop individual and personal skills, occupy their free time in a healthy way, do sports and engage in other learning activities, especially on weekends and the holiday period. Throughout the year, this Centre will operate in the following areas: • Social Responsibility and Citizenship • Sustainability and Ecology Associação Dianova Portugal www.dianova.pt 1
