Introduction

Dear friend of Dream Learn Work, new features and social actions from our 1st Semester in 2022. As we all know, still many challenges seeking social justice here in Brazil, that have been increased due to the global pandemic impacts on everyone's lives, but DLW remains solid on our mission with our participants and their families during such adverse times, and believing in the strength and importance of access to quality education and employability options.

Orlando is studying Computer Science at UERJ (one the the best public universities in the country) and is one of our veteran participants. DLW understands that access to education is at the heart of socioeconomic inequalities in Brazil and we seek to offer opportunities for our youngsters to acquire professional and educational qualifications to change their perspectives.

 

FEBRUARY

International Social Justice Day

Since 2015, the United Nations (UN) has used February 20 to mark the World Day of Social Justice, aiming to raise awareness about equality between peoples, in addition to respect for diversity. DLW, along with all our partners and supporters, believe in the importance of the collective quest for social justice. During this month many of our efforts were aimed at promoting debates, raising awareness and disseminating the importance of social justice.

This collective construction is done with local support and strengthening with our long-standing partner organizations. These youngsters have already taken a fundamental step in the search for more access to quality education and professional qualification. DLW wants to continue to inspire them to dream and aim for ever higher flights. Assisting in the acquisition of vocational and life skills, guiding and supporting their choices.

Once again, thank you very much for all the commitment and dedication with our participants during this last process.

We thank everyone who attended the Good Deeds Day event, which marked the reunion of many social organizations, partners and old friends in a day with lots of love and strengthening of the network in favor of the Volunteering Movement.

Introduction

Dear friend of Dream Learn Work, new features and social actions from our 4rd quarter of 2021. As we all know, still many challenges increased due to the global pandemic impacts on everyone's lives, but DLW remains solid on our mission with our participants and their families during such adverse times. Thank you all for your continuous support and engagement with our organization. Here are some of our latest updates. 

 

OCTOBER

 

DLW partner online activity

In October, our organization, together with a corporate partner, released important material on the need for women to enter, remain and grow in the energy industry. This has been a collective struggle and construction of our organization to strengthen the UN development goals of access to quality education and gender equality.

This initiative is a continuation of the virtual lecture cycle "Diálogos que Multiplicam", an initiative of Equinor Brasil with its partners. In all, there are 50 spots available to participate in the sessions, which last 1h30 and take place via Google Meets, free of charge for all of the participants. 

 

Survey of job losses in favelas

Survey reveals that 54% of Rio's favela residents lost jobs in the pandemic. The research by Coletivo Movimentos analyzed the impact of the pandemic among the residents of Alemão, Maré and Cidade de Deus. Among the problems, the increase in domestic violence and the relationship between racism and depression were also highlighted in the study.

We continue with the urgency to keep strengthening collective organizations from civil society and individuals through innovative projects that serve as exemplary models.

 

Volunteering celebration for teachers

During October DLW payed tribute to all our professors and volunteers who have dedicated their time to sharing knowledge and inspiring our participants. Thanks to all the teachers who, in addition to teaching, transform people and change lives. We continue together in this collective construction!

 

NOVEMBRO 

 

Gastronomic course progress

During November, our participant, Maiara, a student in the 6th period of the Faculty of Nutrition at UFF, told us a little about the classes in the qualification course in Professional Confectionery at Instituto Gourmet and about the challenges of her professional and academic trajectory.

"When I started working at Easter, I was already in love with the profession, I thought about taking a course to go deeper and become professional, but it would be impossible at that time, as I didn't have the conditions. I'm loving to become a professional in something that I'll be able to unite with my academic knowledge. As a future nutritionist and professional confectioner, I want to say that I feel my dreams come true," says the young participant.

 

DLW'ers at Digital event

On November 7th, we were invited by our corporate partner, Brunel Brasil, to participate in an amazing event, HACKTUDO. Our youngsters were very excited by the invitation, which would mark our resumption of in-person activities and external visits.

It was a very memorable day for the 30 Dream Learn Work participants, with lectures, 3D forest, drone race and many other innovative experiences for the DLW'ers.

 

Giving Tuesday Campaign

During this month Dream Learn Work continued and incentivated our #GivingTuesday Campaign to inspire youngsters from Rio to dream about a better future through access to quality education and decent work opportunities. Our organization continues to fulfill our mission. Give hope!

 

DEZEMBRO

 

DLW'er course conclusion in beauty area. 

In an emotional statement, our young participant, Yasmin, talks a little about her trajectory as a participant and about the importance of the positive social impact that access to quality professional qualification and humanized follow-up has on our beneficiaries and their dreams.

"First of all I am grateful for the opportunity that DLW has given me, since I joined the project, it has completely changed my life, before I was just a young 21 year old girl with no idea what to do, today after the opportunities I received, I am a 25 year old woman.

JULY

 

DLW'ers talk about isolation

In July, we mobilized a project to consult and ask our participsants to record short videos of our participants, in their homes, to have their opinions and words on how this period of social isolation has been and the direct and indirect impacts on peripheral populations.We asked our youngteers: how has the pandemic affected their lives? "In my view, so, for my part, I felt very bad in the sense of social distancing, because I was always doing some activity and movement," said our DLW'ers Alecsander. 

 

AUGUST 

 

Dreams never get old!

Our DLW'ers continue to pursue their goals and dreams and give us countless joys! Our former participant, Pedro Henrique, recently told us about one of his recent internship experiences, in the gastronomy area. Pedro lives and works in Portugal, and had a great opportunity to expand his technical skills in Japanese cuisine. The youngster spent a period learning and improving skills in the area and also managed to develop other soft skills with professionals from different countries. Increasing his cultural gains and experiences.

Pedro will definitely return to his local restaurant with great stories and interpersonal relationships that will add more and more to his professional and life trajectory.

 

Participants in labour market

It is wonderful to follow the progress and achievements of all our youngsters. We were happy to add to this collective transformation. Keep walking in pursuit of your goals and dreams. We continue here on your side. Our DLW'er, Sarah Vieira, told us a little about this opportunity to be part of the Subsea 7 team and the importance of this access in the labor market. She is one of 6 people hired in this new cycle at the company. In the previous cycle, we had 3 participants and in this new selection process we have already managed to double that number.

 

SEPTEMBER

 

SDG Impact Award

DLW Project won the INNOVATION AWARD at Pioneers in SDGs Awards 2021! Dream Learn Work's “Vocational Training for Young People in Brazil” project won the Innovation Award in Pioneers in SDGs Awards 2021. This is a big boost of motivation and is a result of multiple effort throughout the years from our #DreamTeam members and partners for this collective achievement.

 

Acces to quality education

BELIEVE IN THE PROCESS! And it was in this optimistic energy that our youngsters completed the Excel course in one of our partner educational centers. This included 6 intensive classes dedicated to awakening and improving the subject, focusing on students' technical qualification.

Several participants are already putting into practice the acquired knowledge and this optimizes the chances in learning and in the job market. We cannot fail to thank our institutional partners and their entire workforce. We thank all of you you for offering the participants yet another quality course and a favorable infrastructure that would guarantee sanitary safety, ensuring a positive resumption in this gradual return to in-person classes.

Thank you all for your support and engagement with our organization. Here are some of our latest updates in this new year. 

 

 

JANUARY

 

DLW'er 2nd place prize

In January, our organization had very special and encouraging news from one of our participants in the IT field. Victor's (25) application and project prototype was among the best  one's of a big challenge, promoted by a leading social organization in the technology area, Recode. His app "Itu" went on to win the 2nd place award!

It's fantastic to see the dedication and commitment of our DLW'ers, even during adverse times, to continue fighting and believing in their dreams. The project's idea was towards  valuing the local community and motivating each citizen to make a difference within their own neighborhood with the interactive platform "Itu" that Victor created for the contest.

 

 

FEBRUARY

 

English Course Partnership

During February DLW had a great opportunity with a new institutional partnership. This time with our friends at Link Languages were responsible for this wonderful opportunity for a language course for our youngsters. Initially, 2 DLW participants will have the opportunity to study English, with the entire structure of qualified professionals and personalized learning from the English course. The idea is to increase these number throughout the development of the project

Certainly, this access to quality education will be very important for the participants to qualify more and learn a new language, aiming their professional, cultural and personal growth. We thank everyone envolved and our partners  for their support and for making this connection happen.

 

Participants online engagement 

Since laste year, DLW has been reinventing itself during the pandemic. One example is our webinar project for our participants throughout this social distancing period. With the project we intended to continue fulfilling our role and mission of providing more access to quality information, education and professional qualification for our participants. 

In 2021 we continue with our online engagement for our participants and partners. Certainly, DLW started this years calender on the right foot with this conversation about Brazil-China relations.
