Professional training and empowerment for socially vulnerable populations

Cidade dos Meninos seeks to guarantee the rights of children and adolescents by creating access to education, housing, food, dental care, culture, sports and leisure activities. It operates as a boarding school, semi-boarding and day-care center with a service structure including sports courts, schools, an auditorium, a school farm, a soccer field and dorms. It offers professional training, seeking to promote improvements in the life prospects of socially-vulnerable youth and adults.

The project will carry out an institutional diagnostic with the objective of creating a management tool that will allow the institution to have a broad and detailed view of its work, making it possible to make assertive decisions. With this step the organization can create a solid and cohesive strategic plan, generating major restructuring leading to a greater impact on the town.

With support from BrazilFoundation, Cidade dos Meninos will:

• Complete a diagnostic of the institution on: HR, finance, administration, communications and marketing;
• Structure a strategic plan;
• Improve the activities and services to the public.
