AIREV Projects

Why fill life with projects if we do not put a good dose of love
in all of them? The AIREV believes it is only possible to achieve the desired goal
if love is the main ingredient. When there is love, there are happy endings.

Love Marks

Designed to think of really unique and special occasions, Mark pieces of love distinguished by uniqueness and subtlety characteristic of the feminine touch.

The "Bolachudo"

With love as the main ingredient, the cakes of The "Bolachudo" will leave you with an incredible feeling of satisfaction and hunger for more.

Enjoying the Seaside

Each year our young enjoy two weeks at the beach. The sun and sea make the delight of many who otherwise wouldn't have the opportunity to enjoy a well deserved holiday.

"Feel like me"

The project "Feel like me" as created in order to raise awareness of the difficulties that people with disabilities endure every day, as well as to inform alternatives and the means for autonomy and inclusion of persons with disabilities.


In order to unite generations, AIREV in partnership with other institutions performs multi-generational gatherings. The activities vary depending on the interests of the guests.
