âArca do Crescerâ: construction of a training centre for 60 young people from the favelas
Every day, Arca do Saber, a Franco-Brazilian NGO created in 2001, welcomes 120Â youngsters aged 6 to 15 after school. The ambition of this NGO located in the heart of the Vila Prudente favela is to give children, teenagers and their families the âopportunity of a better futureâ through very complete support: education, health, vocational training, etc.
In 2106, to offer young people career guidance and support in finding a job, the NGO is developing the Arca do Crescer training centre. This will allow the young people of Vila Prudente to access quality training and find a job rapidly.
Solidarity AccorHotels supports the creation of this training centre to accompany 60 young people.
Supporting a project like Arca do Crescer means to encourage the most effective ways to contribute to young people, which is through education and training. I am very happy to contribute and also to offer to my colleagues the opportunity to contribute through volunteer work, one of the most important pillars of the project!
