Train 360 youths for the workplace in Sao Paulo



The project aims at providing a training program to Brazilian youths from the poorest suburbs of Sao Paulo. This will allow them to find a job in fields such as silk screen, computing, call center and administrative assistant. Basic English is also taught. The goal is to provide the students sufficient knowledge to find a job or set up and run a small business (salon, barbershop, small shop etc.). Courses take place in Sao Paulo at Associacao Danyann: Aprender e Evoluir (Learn and Evolve).

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The youngsters come from poor communities of the Sao Paulo suburbs. The youngsters from these communities are unable to find a job and end up in the streets as beggars, thieves or are hired by the drug dealers. They very often commit crimes and are put in prison or are murdered.

How will this project solve this problem?

The goal of the project is to remove the youths from the streets and provide training in several fields that will allow them to develop a skill to enable them to find a paid job in the markeplace.

Potential Long Term Impact

By providing education and training, the project will allow the youths from the poor communities to find a paid job, giving them sustainability. The impact on the family of the youth and the community is enormous. Dignity, self esteem and buying power is restored. The project aims at giving training to 360 youths. This will impact 360 families or about 1500 people.
