Development of, and fundraising for pedagogical projects to improve the public education system of Pernambuco

Somos Professores Association has developed its own online crowdfunding platform for public school system professional’s educational projects. The idea arose from the desire to gradually transform education while valuing teachers and promoting innovative practices.

This initiative aims to help teachers transform their ideas in the classroom into projects that can bring a new pedagogical dynamic to public education in Pernambuco. Additionally, it intends to help/support teachers with personalized marketing strategies and fundraising to acquire the materials needed to develop their projects.
