I've been trying to become a better woman and more committed to social and cultural issues in my city and also in my state. I am used to work on projects that need little help, political support to become reality. What do I do? Arrange meetings with these people with the Secretaries of government, so they have all possibilities to explain the project and their needs.
There are three projects that voluntarily I take part:
1 Project literary inclusion (help collecting books for the mobile library that a friend keeps in an old van that travels the poor neighborhoods of Cuiabá and it parks in each place for one day, so, children can read books, magazines e even watch short mivies.
2 I support the Indigenous Yawalpiti in the Indigenous Park of Xingu (A very far place, over 1.200 km away from my city, but I go there every year. Invite politicians to visit the village, to get to know the ethnicity and see what they need from the government) . I also help them to expose and sell the handicrafts they produce.
3 In my work as Chief of Protocol of the Government, I hear people, bring them to the claims of the government staff, do crafts and I submit to the federal government, requesting support for local projects. I try to work for the common good, to carry out projects of poor people and so, they themselves run the projects.
On my way, I produce a movement for peace daily in my city. Participating in demonstrations of art and, sharing information about meetings on Government site and promoting good ideas that can make people´s life get an improvement.
Peace in Brazil is very much linked to have work, to have means to produce and support the family.
I think everyone has a special ability to promote peace! Workind, donating, participating in projects that keep children out of streets.
