Associacao Saude Crianca

The ASC is a non-profit, non-governmental organization dedicated to improving the lives of children and families living in the poorest neighborhoods of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Grounded in the principle that illness is not caused by biological factors alone, ASC aims to break the vicious cycle of poverty and suffering - illness, hospital admission, and subsequent readmission and/or death - by assisting not only the child but his or her entire family as well.

The project Bringing Families together trough education increase and improve a lot since the beginning.

During those 19 years of project we realized that the majority of our families don’t have any income or profession qualification. From that we realized that the professionalization of them is essential to allow them to leave the cycle of needed of assistance and truly walk to be a citizen and have social dignity.

Now in December we had our graduation day, 56 mothers form the families attend gratuated in our Professionalization Project divided in seven different areas: Cooking, Beauty classes that involves Hair dressing, manicure, make up, wax and hair dye. The party was in our headquarter and the cooking students did the cake and snacks.

The courses are during the year and each one has the length of 2 to 4 months with the goal of giving income for the family.In 19 years,the project already graduated 2569 persons, like the hairdresser Andrea, that lived in a huge favela in Rio de Janeiro. She entered Saúde Criança when her son had a serious asthma crises and had to stayed in Lagoa Hospital.The doctors there sent her to Saúde Criança and since that her life changed a lot.

In her words "With Saúde Criança I'm able to but my son medicines.My income and the food in my home also improve a lot."Now she is graduated in hairdresser and work at home with clients form the community.

news from one of our beneficiares

T.S was an exceptional student during her time at the professionalization project in Saúde Criança Renascer. She has 3 children and is expecting another one. Due to her effort during her time at the courses, we built her a beauty saloon in her house. Another company partner of one of our sponsor gave her the furniture for her saloon. She is working there and already has clients. In her words:” Now I am very happy and can say that my dreams came true, I have a profession and the best for me, is that I know now that I can support my children with my work. ”Before that she said that she cant do that specially for her second son that is diabetics. For her its important to crab all the opportunities in life and that is what she did with the help of Saúde Criança Renascer You can see her picture and her beauty saloon attached. Thanks for all our donors so far.Without them we cant keep our quality and our good results
