BRINGING HOPE TO A BEGINNING IN BRAZIL

Since 2016, there has been a growing flow of Venezuelans to Brazil, and studies point to a significant percentage of people with complete Higher Education, as shown by the analysis carried out by the International Organization for Migration (IOM), pointing to a majority of the sample surveyed of young people and 26% with higher education.

The partnership with the OIM is a way of reinserting them into the formal labor market, but also of recovering part of the identity of these people”, says Camila Suemi, coordinator of Compassiva's diploma revalidation project.

The partnership will benefit more than 70 Venezuelans and migrants from neighboring countries to Brazil, of which 7 have already had their diplomas revalidated in a period of less than 6 months. It's also worth mentioning that 2020 and 2021 were atypical years because of the COVID 19 worldwide pandemic and, for this reason, having achieved such expressive results was yet another reason for celebration, especially for Yomaira Alexandra Tovar Martinez, Venezuelan veterinary doctor residing in São Paulo, who had her diploma revalidated at the Federal University of Pelotas (UFPEL).

In this way, the project to revalidate diplomas for immigrants in Brazil, as a result of Compassiva's partnership with the IOM, has made it possible for Venezuelans and migrants from neighboring countries to have hope of a fresh start in Brazil, being able to work in their training area, receiving better salaries through formal employment and contributing to the country's economic growth.
