The project, carried out in partnership with DUCTOR, was responsible for serving the 600 families removed from areas affected by floods or resettled due to the construction of the Várzea do Tietê Park. The work included the Lavras Housing Complex, in Guarulhos/SP, which is part of the “Minha Casa, Minha Vida” program, and has a total of 1,460 housing units.
Aiming at integrating families and consolidating positive bonds between residents and the new housing, Synergia’s technical team promoted home visits, participatory workshops, community fairs and experiences that stimulated discussions in democratic and participative spaces. In addition to these, it was possible to apply methodologies to encourage community organization, women’s empowerment and the social appropriation of common spaces in the housing complex.
As a fundamental part of the project, the adaptation and evolution of the living conditions of the resettled population, the process of social and economic reinsertion of families and the environmental quality of the condominium were also monitored. All stages involved the participation of residents.
