Founded in 2016, EduMais is a nonprofit organization based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Our mission is to provide quality education to underprivileged children and teenagers in the Pavão-Pavãozinho and Cantagalo favelas.
Although they live in impoverished conditions, these at-risk young people have too many talents to go to waste. Our educational programs are designed to empower them with the skills to build a brighter future away from poverty, violence, and drugs.
As well as developing their academic abilities, all of our programs employ Positive Discipline to support our children’s social and emotional learning. We want them to have the social and life skills necessary for success.
Given the disadvantaged circumstances of our children, access to our educational programs is always free. A team of dedicated volunteers and a close partnership with Solar Meninos de Luz school allow EduMais to operate on a true low-cost model.
Nevertheless, to make our programs possible, EduMais relies on the generous donations of both individuals and organisations. With your support, we can continue to transform the lives of these wonderful young people with the good education they deserve!
