The CEPEMA Friends Group is a non-profit organization formed as a support association for the Brazilian organization CEPEMA. The association has about 50 members. The main tasks are to disseminate information in Sweden about CEPEMA’s collaboration project in Brazil and to financially support CEPEMA’s operations. Some examples of what the association does to inform and raise money are support parties, seminars, exchange trips and Swedish youth who go as trainees to the organization in Brazil. The Friends group also receives visitors from CEPEMA. It usually develops into fantastic meetings between these Brazilian youth, researchers, farmers, leaders of popular movements, musicians or artists and their Swedish colleagues, experts and soulmates.
