Introduction

Dear friend of Dream Learn Work, many new features and social actions from our 1st quarter of 2021. As we all know, many challenges increased due to the global pandemic, but DLW remains solid on our mission with our participants and their families during these adverse times. Thank you all for your support and engagement with our organization. Here are some of our latest updates in this new year. 

 

 

JANUARY

 

DLW'er 2nd place prize

In January, our organization had very special and encouraging news from one of our participants in the IT field. Victor's (25) application and project prototype was among the best  one's of a big challenge, promoted by a leading social organization in the technology area, Recode. His app "Itu" went on to win the 2nd place award!

It's fantastic to see the dedication and commitment of our DLW'ers, even during adverse times, to continue fighting and believing in their dreams. The project's idea was towards  valuing the local community and motivating each citizen to make a difference within their own neighborhood with the interactive platform "Itu" that Victor created for the contest.

 

 

FEBRUARY

 

English Course Partnership

During February DLW had a great opportunity with a new institutional partnership. This time with our friends at Link Languages were responsible for this wonderful opportunity for a language course for our youngsters. Initially, 2 DLW participants will have the opportunity to study English, with the entire structure of qualified professionals and personalized learning from the English course. The idea is to increase these number throughout the development of the project

Certainly, this access to quality education will be very important for the participants to qualify more and learn a new language, aiming their professional, cultural and personal growth. We thank everyone envolved and our partners  for their support and for making this connection happen.

 

Participants online engagement 

Since laste year, DLW has been reinventing itself during the pandemic. One example is our webinar project for our participants throughout this social distancing period. With the project we intended to continue fulfilling our role and mission of providing more access to quality information, education and professional qualification for our participants. 

In 2021 we continue with our online engagement for our participants and partners. Certainly, DLW started this years calender on the right foot with this conversation about Brazil-China relations. 

 

 

MARCH

 

DLW support campaign

Our DLW against COVID-19 fundraising project that started back in March of 2020, continues strong with the distribution and support to our participants during these dificult times in Rio de Janeiro and all over Brazil.

Thanks to the collective commitment of our partners from local NGOs, financial partners, volunteers, donors/supporters, GlobalGiving and DLW'ers, we are managing to continue to reach and fulfill our goals of collecting material and distributing them, and we continue the fundraising campaign to ensure more grocery staples, cleaning and hygiene kits for these families, given the health and socioeconomic impacts caused by COVID-19 here.

OCTOBER

 

Social Partners Mobilization

In October, our organization held many online events and one of these gatherings happened with our local social partners to talk and debate together about our participants and try and find collective solutions during such adverse times with our respective perspectives for the future.

During the event all of our partners talked about the DLW partnership, collective actions and also shared their respective experiences and challenges throughout the current moment. It was a great opportunity to exchange knowledge and different experiences and how it is so necessary and important for social organizations to remain united and strong!

 

 

NOVEMBER

 

Black Awareness Month

 

In November, Dream Learn Work's sent out a invitation for our webinar about: "The fight against racial discrimination: experiences, resistance and combat. The event was to celebrate Black Awareness month, remember and highlight the fight against racial discrimination, stimulating, even more, the debate about opportunities that result in more social justice for black people.

DLW understands that this type of debate and efforts need to be a daily mission and, therefore, we promote and continue believing in a collective construction that empowerment and promotes diversity and inclusion, in addition to concrete affirmative policies, with the commitment to make our society a better place.

 

 

DECEMBER

 

Corporate Social Responsibility

In the last three editions of Rio Oil & Gas, Innovasjon Norge and Innovation Norway South America has invited us to the Norwegian Pavilion to connect with the Norwegian network in the Oil & Gas industry in Rio de Janeiro and meet new connections.

Dream Learn Work was honored to talk about "Corporate social responsibility post COVID-19" along with some of our partners, such as Equinor and Kongsberg. Every year has been a great success and brings a fresh breeze of positivity to the industry. This year will not be different.

Our mission and values to keep on inspiring DLW'ers from Rio de Janeiro to dream about a better future through access to quality education and decent work opportunities, and we understand the need of this support in a post pandemic scenario, so that these younsters continue having a fighting chance in pursuit of your goals and dreams.

 

Christmas Box Distribution

The distribution of these Christmas boxes was very special and certainly another collective victory, thanks to the engagement and success of our network, corporate and institutional partnerships and true willingness of so many people that also fight for social justice.

Our efforts on behalf of our participants have been rewarded with good results and we still hope for a better tomorrow, even during such adverse times. The DLW fight against COVID-19 via our fundraising project, started in March of 2020 and we continued with the distribution and support to our participants during the pandemic.
