" I recently began the course, Introduction to Digital Photography, offered by SENAC Rio (an institute that offers vocational courses in Rio de Janeiro), and I am happy to say that this course will be extremely valuable to my work and is very gratifying. I really needed to improve my knowledge and skills, and Saúde Criança’s professionalization project is once again helping me reach my goals. I hope to exceed all expectations, and I have to thank you for the respect and care you showed my family. This is an opportunity for professional growth and an experience that will impact my life.
This is the second opportunity that Saúde Criança has given me. The first was an English course which was really empowering for me, but at the time I was having personal problems that stopped me from fully taking advantage of that opportunity. After three years without working, I was thankful to find employment as a Secretarial Assistant at a manufacturing company, a dream of mine.
Yet, even with this dream realized, I believe that we always should be working to improve ourselves and gain more knowledge; I am once again entering a course. To have this additional opportunity, makes me think about the concern Saúde Criança has shown for my family. It’s funny that the same week I was looking for courses in my area, I had my monthly check-in at Saúde Criança, and I was called by the coordinator, to talk about courses that would help my professional development. This beautiful coincidence increases my faith that God provides everything at the right time."

The services at Saúde Criança are very important and have helped me very much. Not only have they helped my child’s health but with many other things.
I think Aconchego is very important because it includes the lectures, the hugs, and the affection of the volunteers, and they really do care about us. Every time I participate in these meetings I feel relieved, and I can only thank them.
It is very important to me. It has really improved my self-esteem and my appearance. I was really worn-down, and thought I’d work my whole life in rich ladies’ houses, now I think about opening my own salon, being the boss and not the employee, who is so often humiliated. I can now dream about my children going to college. I want a different life for them, a better one…
