Digital Project CEACA Changing Lives in the Rio

My name is Thiago Castro, I discovered CEACA through a friend who invited me to do a project that earned a scholarship valued at $ 65.00. I started doing the Young Agent Project at age 13, with 15 years my daughter was born then I had to wake up to life, got the project started to Win and I qualify. The CEACA has helped me see life differently, fighting for my objectives The CEACA has always supported me and gave me strength to continue. When I turned 16 years, Carlos Alexander offered me an opportunity to learn and improve myself in information technology to teach and be an educator. When he realized I was ready to teach, I started with the CDI Community Educator with the mission to transform lives by educating and teaching the Basic and Advanced Computing. After I started teaching in the Project seize with pleasure, where the objective of the project was to support education for children, too, was an educator of the winning project where young girls would qualify in Computerized Administrative Assistant, I also worked on Project Winning the Future - FIA. 

Today I work in Project Collective Coca-Cola, which qualify young people 15 to 25 in the area of sales promoters and seeking their first job, as well as the CEACA-Digital graphics rendering services. So many young people like me participate in the CEACA-Digital thanks to courses offered today are embedded in the labor market. 
We have progressed with the help of donations and employees, but still can not achieve our objective of setting up our own graphics to make our services accessible to competitive, because the community there is no graphics. 
This work is of extreme importance to us because through him we can afford our sustainability.
