Transformando a vidas atraves da tecnologia

My name is Alessandro Neves Rodrigues, I am 27 years old, I am an analyst in the company ALL.
A year and seven months that I am part of this wonderful company. Gain more than three minimum wages per month and I'm in college (IT) technology in the 5th period. This is all thanks to the wonderful work done by the NGO-ECAC in which Dona ANA VILA MARCONDES is the president.
                 It was not always so, before my life was very painful, my mother, mother of three sons worked as a cook in the family home, the money he earned was only for the household expenses, and almost never enough to buy toys, clothes , SHOE for us. This situation made my brothers seek a financial solution faster, "crime"! Unfortunately the way without success, and saw him coming the pain of losing two brothers killed in clashes related to drug trafficking. The days spent on productive activities without slabs, at a time when almost consumed drugs and participated in the sale of them. That was my world. Until you reach the institution, age 19, with no prospect of life, attending the 4th grade of elementary school, and grace the magnificent work done by the institution ECAC-VILA, I had the privilege to learn computer, go to college. Analyst and I am now as a customer, the largest call center in Latin America: "Contax".
This work has been developing the ECAC to 28 years, offering our community an opportunity to various courses for all ages, of course, I am a living example. My life changed dramatically after I met this institution, today I am very grateful for everything you gave in my LIFE!
I ask the help of donors through the Global Giving to continue this work and make a difference in the lives of other young people as it did in mine. The ECAC Digit @ l is the path to change the outlook for the community and needs your help to continue.
