Aramitan is a Socio-Cultural Development Centre in Embu Guaçu (São Paulo-Brazil) which offers the local and international Community a safe and open space where a wide range of Projects and Cultural Events take place contributing to make the motto "another world is possible" come true.
Aramitan encourages young people and adults who are willing to take responsibility and make a commitment for social renewal. With the involvement of people from all around the world we are building another kind of globalization, the globalization of love, brotherhood, commitment and responsibility.
In December 2005 the Aramitan project was founded by husband and wife Santiago and Sandra De Marco who currently live in New Zealand. In Aramitan there is a strong Team of young people who coordinate the project.
There is a strong network of local people around Aramitan who contribute with its work in different ways!
There is also a great international network of Aramitan members who in different ways contribute from Japan, Spain, New Zealand, Sweden, Germany, Switzerland, Argentina, etc..
