Education and Culture

Lack of access to quality education is a key contributing factor to Brazil being one of the most unequal countries in the world. Poor school infrastructure and teaching and few available cultural activities are just some of the challenges to Brazil’s education system, which are disproportionately felt by low-income communities. IBGE data show that 11.3 million people are illiterate in Brazil, and only 16.5% of people 25 and older have completed high school, for example (2018). Furthermore, 23% of youth between the ages of 15 and 29 neither study nor work, according to IPEA (2018). Investing in Education is key to promoting development and equal opportunities in the future.

Investing in education is fundamental for promoting development and equal access to opportunities. We invest in themes such as: teacher training, financial and technology literacy, sports and culture, entrepreneurship and professional training, access to higher education, and early childhood education.
