Striving for a better future
Founded in 2016, EduMais is an NGO that provides high-quality education to underprivileged children and teenagers in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Our educational programs empower at-risk young people in the Pavão-Pavãozinho and Cantagalo favelas with the skills to build a future away from poverty, violence, and drugs. All nine of these programs are free for our talented students as everyone deserves access to a good education. But to make this possible, we rely on the generosity and commitment of our wonderful donors and volunteers. Join us, and let’s transform lives together!
Due to COVID-19, our immediate concern is the health and well-being of our students and their families. The congested space of the favelas makes social distancing impossible. In addition, the economic impacts of the coronavirus are particularly strong in these communities, and many families have lost all sources of income.
To support them through this difficult time, EduMais is currently fundraising for essential food and sanitation products. For just €11, you can provide 14 non-perishable food items and 8 vital sanitation products to a family in need. Fight COVID-19 in the favelas with us today.
