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.

News from the project

During those 16 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 profissionalization 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. On April 2008, 37 students graduated from the profession courses. Since the beginning of the project, during the past years now we have offered to students more than 1650 work tools and around 2055 professional training courses, internal and external and we hope to keep increasing the numbers of graduation. Our goal is to professionalize 260 persons by year and donate 280 working tools in next year project.

The main objective of the project is to offer to the families attended tools so that they can work and generate money to support the family after the period in Renascer. There is 3 types or work inside the project: Internal courses in the beauty area with a diploma , external courses and the donation of working tools for every woman or man graduated in the course .For the internal courses we also offer courses to improve their self stem like professional gesture , how to speak and to behave in a work place.

Since our main project is in the beauty area we offer deontological service for the students to improve their appearance and healthy.

Inside the project there is also the possibility of Renascer build a salon inside the mothers house so they can work at home near their sick children.

In next year project, 2009 the project will open a new course in the cooking area .During those years of project we realized that there is a big demand for that in our public. We already have a kitchen but we will need kitchen tools and equipments. We want to begin with two class following the same model or the beauty project

Renascer’s team want to thanks a lot the donors that choose this project to support , with their help we could achieved those great results showed above!
