The beginning of a new journey

Presentation of the journey on the 9th Congress

The almost two decades of Vaga Lume performance have been a learning time. The hard mission of empowering children from rural communities in the Amazon through community libraries requires great maturity and an effective strategy to face all challenges that come by. Distance and lack of infrastructure in the communities that, most of the times, not even have permanent electricity require structured local partnerships and very well-defined logistics processes; the fundraising work requires the need of diversifying our partnerships in a way to ensure our financial autonomy; the extensive volunteer's network, donors and collaborators implies a work of constant engagement. Therefore, a strong and well-structured basis is essential for achieving our biggest dreams.

With that in mind, in 2019 Vaga Lume took a step toward an organizational maturity to be able to broaden its horizons. Our desire to make community libraries to become real in the entire Amazon makes our challenge as big as our ambition. That way, after a long process of strategic planning, we have created Vaga Lume 2030 Plan that establishes short, medium and long-term goals.

Going further into the community’s journey (Jornada da Comunidade) is our first step to better understand where we are and where we want to be. The community’s journey was developed to reach full engagement to the libraries in order to strike balance between Vaga Lume's engagement and the community involvement. The main goal to set our journey is to ensure autonomy and community articulation around the library and, consequently, increase the project's impact. By using this model for the journey, Vaga Lume aims to impact 180,000 children and youngers in the Amazon by managing 300 rural community libraries by the next decade.

If our volunteer network committed with social change through reading enabled uncountable results since 2001, we undoubtedly believe that we can count on many more committed people to plant and make grow more seeds in the Amazon, São Paulo or any other spot in the world.
