YOUNG PEOPLE IN COLLEGE
We provide College scholarships to young people who are victimized by the social condition of Brazilian hinterland. Vulnerable young people have the chance to increase their educational level and also get the first College degree of their families. This project strengthens the performance of Amigos do Bem because it creates local capable agents who will ensure the continuity of the regional development.
The Project Transformation aims to promote social inclusion and personal development of people who are assisted by Amigos do Bem. With much love, volunteers travel from São Paulo to the northeast every month to hold lectures about citizenship topics to children, youth and adults. In addition to lectures, there are interviews, home visits and each family is monitored.
