Project: Between Friends- Network of Information on Disablement
Project “Entre Amigos” - Network of Information on Disablement, coordinated by SORRI-BRASIL, started serving the public from the site inauguration (, on December 15, 1998.

The differential of the “Entre Amigos” network is the technical and philosophical diversity that the scope of partner organizations (public entities and non-government organizations) provide to the project, the structuring of which was discussed and established in advance, democratically, during the whole year of 1998.

Currently, “Entre Amigos” counts on the participation of 27 organizations and has as purpose to contribute for social inclusion of the disabled people, through the offer of guidance, forwarding and publishing services of information to the disabled people, their families, students and professionals acting mainly in the Health and Education areas and to the society in general. The users of those services contact “Entre Amigos” network through telephone, fax, mail, electronic mail or personally.

Basically, the service to the “Entre Amigos” users is based on three resources: the Data Base, the Service Center and the Site.

In only two years of actuation, counting on a lean team of contracted professionals and with a modest publicizing strategy, “Entre Amigos” exceeded the expectations and has been showing a potential that, once used, may result in the enlargement of the offered services, with a higher number of visitors and, therefore, in the increase of the number of benefited users.
