Everything started with the idea of the “Centro da Juventude“ in March 2007. When the building was built up in 2009 by Brazilian and German youths and inaugurated on the last day of the visit in Porto, many of the involved pupils realized: It cannot be over by now. So new plans were made and projects developed.

In Germany we cannot really know, which kind of support the Brazilian friends need most. From there all projects are developed together by German and Brazilian adolescents and talked over with Kolping International. This is the premise, that all the implementations founded by Brasil09 are really needed and can and will be used for a long time by the youths in Porto.
