Ativação (Activation) Project

Conversation circles, exercises, nutritional guidance and anthropometric measurements with the aim of combating obesity and promoting health and quality of life.

Held in 2022, the Ativação Project was attended by 22 members of families served by Dara, in addition to Dara employees diagnosed with obesity. Over the course of six months, a multidisciplinary team (physical educator, physician, nutritionist, and psychologist) carried out activity modules, which included aerobic exercises, strength endurance sessions, as well as conversation circles, nutritional guidance, and anthropometric measurements. The positive results of the project could be verified through questionnaires applied at the beginning and end of the activities.

This project was made possible by the U.S. Consulate.
