Centro Vegetariano (CV) is a Portuguese non-profit organisation which started in 2001. Among other projects we maintain websites www.centrovegetariano.org (Portuguese, with list of restaurants, hundreds of recipes and articles and other resources) and www.vegan2050.org (English), newsletters in Portuguese and English, a magazine (Portuguese) and a Vegan Mailing List.
Currently at CV we have a ruin that we aim to restore and use as CV headquarters, so that we can promote activities and events such as:
Group gatherings and meetings;
Cooking lessons and workshops related to CV's activity;
Archive, library and museum.
The building needs a lot of materials and work before it is ready to use. The roof must be restored as well as the stone walls. It is necessary to put new floors, a WC, stairs, electrical wiring and other improvements.
1) The simplest way is to make a money donation, in Euros or USD, using PayPal
2) Donate materials
Companies or individuals which could deliver materials to CV headquarters in Oliveira do Hospital, Portugal, are welcome to donate building materials. Please contact us if you have anything you would like to donate.
3) Volunteer work.
Building parties will be organised for the most simple and safe repairs at a later stage. Subscribe to our newsletter to keep updated.
