Summary

SINAL do Vale is an organic farm and education center located in the lush Atlantic Rainforest one hour from downtown Rio de Janeiro. It is a place of learning and inspiration specially designed for children. Passionate educators teach children weekly about the importance of soil, caring for plants, the water cycle, re-forestation and the local ecosystem. SINAL aims to build lasting appreciation and respect for nature while giving children skills that can benefit themselves and their communities.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Santo Antonio, which is a 9,000 person neighborhood, sits at the foot of a beautiful valley surrounded by mountains and covered by a lush forest named Mata Atlantica, from which only 7% of the original coverage remains. There are permanent threats due to the proximity of large cities such as Rio de Janeiro. SINAL helps educate children and their parents about the critical importance of protecting the forest for the well being of present and future generations.

How will this project solve this problem?

SINAL provides a center for learning and discovery. It is a 200 acres organic farm with abundant diversity in plants and trees, allowing children access to a living nature laboratory. The local population sits in a overcrowded zone at the entrance of the Valley. Children can come and experience nature and sustainable concepts with the support of experienced educators. Donations allow children to learn to grow their own food, plant trees and recycle garbage. SINAL inspires love for nature.

Potential Long Term Impact

SINAL is located in an area where new climate conditions are causing and increasing risks of natural disasters such as floods and land slides. SINAL encourages children to participate in activities such as re-forestation and protection of water sources that help to develop resilience. By working with the next generation SINAL hopes to teach new practices that ultimately will improve behaviour and offer an example to low income communities that live in the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro.
