Wiki Adus Platform of Information for Refugees
About the Wiki Adus Project
The Adus Institute - an initiative of the civil society to assist refugees in their reintegration process in society - has created a collaborative platform with the intention of gathering volunteers in the mission to inform and orient refugees seeking for a new life in Brazil.
The Wiki Adus platform of Information for Refugees is part of the Informadus Project and is based on the premise that people arriving as a refugee are proactive, independent and articulate individuals - and that, when well informed, they can find and follow their own path. It is focusing on helping them to find that path, that is, the path towards social reintegration, that the access to information is a priority of the Adus Institute.
The platform was created based on the Media Wiki tool that greatly facilitates the editing of content and allows engaging a large number of volunteers, so that anyone who has an interest can help to share more information. This initiative aims to be a space for communication between refugees and a network of supporters of refuge, so that organizations and individuals who work within the cause can exchange information and provide always an increasingly better and effective welcoming for the population of refugees who seek asylum in Brazil.
