Our project

Helping in child development is undoubtedly the most beneficial way to increase the quality of life in children living in Brazil; a country with one of the most pronounced wealth gaps in the world

Thanks to the social project department of UNIFOR, who showed us the different projects provided by the University in Brazil, we met Monica GALEAO, La Escolinha’s headmistress. After a preliminary experience with kids during a morning at the school and a warm welcoming from all the teachers, it was with pleasure that we decided to choose this project.

  • WHY?

First of all, we were surprised by the number of children that the school has to take care of. Besides, the vast majority of them present a real lack of affection. Indeed, the school provides education for 670 children, and there are only 24 teachers. In light of those observations, we could not help from being immediately involved in the school’s life.

Furthermore, the locality of the school, near our campus, represents a big advantage for us: it will allow us to go there and help more frequently than we had first thought.

Thus it was with pleasure and a great amount of motivation that we accepted to help regularly La Escolinha.

  • HOW?

Our help is divided in two times, since we don’t share the same schedule. Chloe will go to La Escolinha on Mondays and Wednesdays, and Juliette will go on Tuesdays and Thursdays. That way, there will always be a person on site. Both of us will take part at the classes and help the teachers. This includes also during break-time. We will also participate in the different events planned by the school (Carnaval, Easter…).

Moreover, we decided to broadcast our experience on this blog, so we will keep it updated each week. All the articles you will read and all the pictures you will see are entirely homemade.

  • WHEN?

We decided to help La Escolinha as long as we can afford it. This means we will go to the school during all our semester in Fortaleza: from February 2013 to the end of June 2013.
