Summary

Arca believes that education is the path to a better future. 15 years ago, Aldair and Ana Beatriz, 2 children from Favela Vila Prudente, Sao Paulo, joined Arca socio-educational center. During 8 years, they benefited from meals, activities as well as psychological support. Nowadays, they are pursuing higher education. Arca wants to fund free, quality courses for children and youths, getting them back on the learning path, giving access to digital literacy and ensuring better chances at life.

Challenge

Recovering from the education loss induced by schools closure during the 18 months of the Pandemic and giving disadvantaged young people the opportunity to build a future is key. The East region (Zona Leste) of Sao Paulo - where Vila Prudente is located - concentrates 71% of all the NEET population. More than ever, offering free educational and vocational services in the favela is a necessity and after 20 years of presence, Arca has developed a real expertise.

Solution

Arca wants to address the growing demand from children and young adults of the favela to be offered a safe and healthy educational environment. Children will benefit from balanced meals and daily activities, youth will access computers, receive the relevant trainings and mentoring support and prepare job applications. We have the ambition of targeting integral development because we believe that our beneficiaries will be better learner and happier if their physical and emotional needs are met.

Long-Term Impact

Since 2001, Arca contributes to building a better future for children and youths growing in Vila Prudente's favela. Educational and vocational programs led by Arca reinforce the community's cohesion and allow its children to unlock their potential through artistic, sportive and linguistic activities. Professional training, mentoring, psychological and entrepreneurship support give young adults the tools to access the labour market with increased self-esteem and a sense of their own value.
