PROGRESS: Has your organization seen progress toward a culture of peace and nonviolence in your domain of action and in your constituency during the first half of the Decade?

Since its foundation, in April 2003, Projeto Casulo has contributed to the improvement in quality of life for the population of Real Parque and Jardim Panorama through a community development process that prioritizes young people as strategic agents of social transformation. In only two years of activities, it is possible to realize that the youngsters and, consequently, the community have acquired knowledge about citizenship and community mobilization. This process contribute to minimize social differences – afterall, violence is not a public security question, but a social question.

OBSTACLES: What are the most important obstacles that have prevented progress?

The main obstacles are people’s conformism and lack of initiative and the dificulties to obtain financial support for projects.

ACTIONS: What actions have been undertaken by your organization to promote a culture of peace and nonviolence during the first half of the Decade?

Projeto Casulo’s main objective is to promote autonomy and citizenship among the community through actions in culture and education. In order to achieve this purpose, Projeto Casulo works with the following guidelines: Culture (an invaluable means to strengthen young people's self-reliance and foster constructive and creative processes),  Education (expand young people's personal and educational background and thus contribute to the development of the skills and abilities necessary for their inclusion in society), Community Action (to strengthen local community organizations through actions that could help attract new members, coach community leaders and agents, and enable the implementation of projects for the socio-economic development of that area) and Young Entrepreneurship (to encourage, train and support young people to start social enterprises and income-generating enterprises). The main programs developed at Projeto Casulo are
Oficinas Culturais (Cultural Workshops of Music, Drama, Dance, Arts and Hip Hop), Espaço Multimidia (Multimedia Space – usage of information and communication technologies), Observatorio Social (Social Observatory – produces, analyzes and provides data and social indicators of the local community) and Formacao de Jovens Professores (Young Teacher Training Program – provide college education in the Education Graduation). In addition, there is the Centro Cultural e Comunitario Casulo (Casulo Culture and Community Center), the building where all Projeto Casulo’s actitivies take place and that is also the place for the community lives through lectures, shows and workshops.
