RIBEIRO, Jussélio Rodrigues  e  MOURAO, Luciana. Carnivalas a tool of social inclusion of people with disabilities. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.16, n.3, pp.736-756. ISSN 1808-4281.

Social inclusion has been more discussed in society. The literature points increasing role of companies in facing this social inclusion programs. The aim of this study was to evaluate the Project Ambassadors of Joy (Projetos Embaixadores da Alegria), which uses the carnival as a tool for social inclusion. The multimethod research (document analysis, questionnaires and interviews) included 538 people (beneficiaries, family members, community members, administrators, funders and implementers of the project). The design was a quasi-experiment that examined whether participation in the program increased awareness of social inclusion. The results of the t test demonstrated that the project achieved its objectives only partially because there was no significant difference in relation to favorability to school inclusion between treatment group and control group. As a complement, in the content analysis, we identified five categories related to procedural aspects and results of the project, namely: (i) family participation; (ii) forms of communication; (iii) mobility; (iv) employment and income generation; and (v) social inclusion. The findings of the research were discussed from the theoretical framework. We give recommendations for the project and suggestions for further research.
