Our goal is to bring

more freedom to Brazilians.

 

The means: passion for reading

(#literacy4all).

Because change requires knowledge and knowledge starts with reading.

Literacy, or actually, the lack thereof, is Brazil’s most deep and lasting social issue.

Most Brazilians are illiterate in some level. Only 1 in 4 Brazilians are fully literate (math, reading and writing).

Everything we do is carefully and tenderly thought of to bring the passion for reading to Brazilian students in the most impoverished areas of the continental country.

By helping poor young students to see reading as a passion, as something enjoyable and fun, we are certain that we are sowing seeds that will blossom beautifully in the future.

 

Join us: help Brazilians to thrive! Let’s break the cycle of poverty for good.
