The unit of the project Ponto de Cultura Obirim Odara is maintained by NGO Ilê Omolu Oxun, which has been promoting social activities in São João de Meriti since 1997. The activities focus on the dissemination and preservation of the African culture. The Ponto de Cultura has been offering, since 2010, workshops on props and costumes of deities, crafts, painting on canvas, and on African-Brazilian cuisine. Since then, it has attended more than 200 people, regardless of age, gender, religion or sexual orientation. Obirim Odara has already presented its works throughout the State of Rio, carrying forward the African-Brazilian culture. Classes happen on Wednesdays, starting at 2pm, at the headquarters of Ilê Omolu Oxum "terreiro" (an outdoor area where African origin religious practices take place).
