Help Us Create A Sanctuary for Mens Mental Health Retreats

Donate Below

Join us on an inspiring journey of transformation and healing. We are embarking on an ambitious project to create a sanctuary for men's mental health retreats by converting a run-down house and outbuildings in Central Portugal into a haven where men can find solace, support, and strength to navigate life's complexities.

Our Vision

Our vision is to establish a nurturing environment where men can retreat from daily pressures and focus on their mental and emotional well-being. This retreat will offer a variety of therapeutic activities, workshops, and support groups designed to foster connection, self-discovery, and healing. We plan to host workshops led by experts from around the world, covering everything from mindfulness and meditation to physical fitness and creative expression.

The Need

Our team, consisting of individuals who have suffered loss and those we have assisted through their own challenges, understands the profound impact of creating a supportive space. Men of all ages face mental health challenges, often struggling in silence due to societal expectations and stigma. By providing a dedicated space for open discussion and professional support, we can break down these barriers and promote a culture of openness and acceptance.

Our Plans

We have secured a beautiful property with great potential. With your help, we can transform this space into a warm and welcoming home away from home. Our renovation plans include:

  • Restoring the Main House: Comfortable accommodation, complete with electricity, well water supply, and solar power.

  • Renovating Outbuildings: Spaces for workshops, group sessions, and recreational activities.

  • Developing Serene Outdoor Areas: Meditation, reflection, and fresh food gardens.

  • Equipping the Facility: Essential resources and amenities for a safe and supportive environment.

Additionally, this retreat will create new job opportunities in our local area, further benefiting the community. We also welcome volunteers from other countries to join our mission.

How You Can Help

Your support is crucial to getting this project off the ground as quickly as possible. We are seeking:

  • Donations: Every contribution, no matter the size, brings us closer to opening our doors.

  • Building Materials: Supplies that can be transported to Portugal to assist in renovations.

  • Labour: Skilled or general labour to help with construction and setup.

  • Equipment: Tools and resources essential for building and maintaining the retreat.

  • Other Supplies: Items such as toilet paper, cleaning products, and basic necessities.

Every bit of assistance, whether financial or in-kind, is greatly appreciated and will make a significant impact.
