This non-profit association, founded by Ms. Grazia Matteoni, provides support to Brazilian youth with a special focus on educational and professional training for people with high social disadvantages.
Thanks to the efforts of this association, the “Education Center Matteo and Lapo Matteoni” located on the outskirts of Porto Seguro, was actualized. This structure acts as school for the children to learn about agriculture and to express their creativity through handicrafts, improving the possibility for future access to employment for 100 students starting at the age of 10.
The Center is equipped with a 100 meter flowing artesian well as well as a solar energy heating system conducted by solar panels. The funds used for this project were obtained exclusively through free donations and events organized and promoted by SOS Brasil throughout the year.
