GIVING BACK TO THE AZORES- FOR A BETTER COMMON FUTURE

In 2009 Futurismo developed a partnership with Aurora Social, a nonprofit Private Social Solidarity Institution targeted to people with special needs. Founded in April 1994, this institution promotes personal, social and professional development required for employment opportunities, as well as rehabilitation and increased value for special needs people in the community. Futurismo works with small groups of young adults, giving them the opportunity to join us aboard our whale watching trips throughout the year. During winter time the participants produce handicrafts under the guidance and orientation of specialist rehabilitation monitors. These handicrafts are inspired by their whale watching tours with Futurismo and are sold in Futurismo’s shops. The value earned from the sale of these products is returned to fund the activities of the association.
