Introduction

Dear friend of Dream Learn Work, many new features and social actions from our 4th quarter of 2020. Last year our challenges increased due to the global pandemic, but we remain firm on our mission with our participants and their families during such adverse times. Thank you all for your support and engagement with our organization. Here are some of our latest updates.

 

 

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.

AUGUST

 

Participants online engagement 

Since May, 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. 

The volunteers are invited to talk about different topics of specialization that can be beneficial to our participants.

DLW is extremely happy with this project and with the enthusiasm and interest of so many different organizations and people. This has been fundamental for a collective construction with our participants during such difficult times.

 

"My life, my dream" workshop

Our motivational workshop "My Life, My Dream", this year had a online edition, and brought the theme: Photography as a form of expression.

The project aims to work on youngster's dreams and make them interact with people from other places and from different realities, being able to help them in their trajectory or even reaffirm questions about themselves.

Our participant, Thaís (20) from Complexo da Maré, is an example of motivation and engagement during pandemic times. Despite such adverse times, she is doing her part and is collaborating with her local community.

With great happiness DLW announces another financial partnership. We welcome Altera Infrastructure, formerly part of Teekay, to our network of partners. Their connection with Norway and Brazil is another synergy between the two parties and only strengthens our common relationship and interest.

DLW would like to thank our friends and supporters from some of our global network. Their financial donations for our campaign to buy and deliver grocery staples and personal hygiene and cleaning supplies has been fundamental during pandemic times!

With these donations, we are managing to help our participants and family members, in situations of vulnerability.

 

 

JUNE

 

Black Women and Labour Market

It takes a lot of strength, courage and determination to overcome life’s obstacles and DLW takes advantage of this space to talk about black women and their difficulties in accessing the labour market. We have many challenges and the dreams of the participants are unlimited.

We thank our network of partners, volunteers and workforce for being with us in the journey for collective transformation. DLW works to change this inequality scenario and promote more equity and social justice!

 

LGBTQI+ Pride Day

June 28th is the international day of LGBTQI+ pride. Despite the achievements, prejudice is still an issue that makes it difficult to enter the labor market. Even so, stories that overcome that encourage us to continue fighting for inclusion.

One of our participants, recently graduated in the Professional Cook course with an emphasis on Social Gastronomy at a partner educational institution and featured their campaign this year.
