Citizenship Promotion

What's up with that "citizen of respect"?

We believe that citizenship translates into understanding and exercising human rights. Thus, our goal is to promote the sense of belonging to a community and the implications of what it is to live in society.

For this, we encourage awareness and motivation for equal opportunities, physical and expression freedom, education, health, work, culture, leisure, full employment and healthy environment. Everyone who knows and practices such principles is recognized as a citizen of respect.

Rescuing citizenship with (and of) Raimundo Nonato

Raimundo, Teresa, Tiago, Sara, João. A couple, their three kids, and still a baby on the way. A family born and raised in the countryside, in the Brazilian semi-desert, received an opportunity to go to the capital, the big city, the land of opportunities. However, culture, mentality and changes between rural and urban life will lead them to face various conflicts.

Raimundo Nonato

Illiteracy, basic documentations, housing, alcohol abuse and domestic violence are some of the topics covered in the book Raimundo Nonato – A Citizen of Respect (Raimundo Nonato – Um Cidadão de Respeito). The story encompasses all the principles demonstrated in the previous questioning, using a simple but engaging narrative that is very close to reality.

This book is used in the courses of Citizenship Promotion, usually approached together with literacy courses for the same class, but that can occur without being together.

There are a number of contexts in which you can imagine this course. NGOs, peripheries, prisons, cities away from large centers, are some examples of scenarios of application of this course. But there are still others to be explored! If you identify any context, please contact us.

Volunteer. You can also make a difference.
