There are many ways to become part of our initiative. We are excited about any message, about any kind of support and, of course, about any donation!
Education - Basis for Independence
We offer several courses for adults in our education center in Araruna.
Since the adults' education is often insufficient, we offer courses in basic skills such as reading or writing. We also teach practical skills such as domestic economy as well as courses for our beekeepers and for the tree nursery.Furthermore, we offer courses in artificial education such as drawing or handicraft. The lecture room is also used by our Hip Hop dancing group in order to practice their choreographies.
The courses are taught by our employees, volunteers and partners, e. g. members of the University of Bananeiras and the Brazilian governmental organization SEBRAE.
In cooperation with Passo Fundo e.V., we award scholarships to especially gifted and socially committed young Brazilians from our region. At the moment, 13 scholars funded within this project study at the universities in Araruna and Guarabira. We enable them to study by means of monthly scholarships of about 70 to 150 euros (about 100 to 200 US dollars).
