ABC NGO is a non-profit organization with focus on #education #well-being #familycare #Brazil and #sustainability.
"There is no #sustainability and family #integration where there aren’t #education and #well-being" Ricardo d'Avila, the Founder.
The ABC NGO is officially based in Geneva, being certified by United Nations as a respecful and sustainable non profit organization.
To provide integration for Brazilian families-kids, who live in Geneva/Switzerland, through education, integration care and sustainability, being also a place for internships towards high-potential Brazilian students from low-income families.
To be recognized as the best Brazilian NGO in Switzerland that provides education, integration care and sustainability for Brazilian families-kids and high potential students.
ABC NGO was founded in 2017 with focus on international education and professional opportunities for high potential Brazilian students from low-income families. Success stories were built in 2018 and 2019 when more than ten students from the best Universities in Brazil came to Europe for international-professional experiences. The covid-19 crisis came over in 2020 and the projects were put in stand by. However new ideas and partners have been well worked during the crisis and a big next step is under development. An integration care-center is borning with focos on education, well-being and sustainability.
"The important thing is not what is given, but the love with which it is given" (Madre Teresa de Calcutá)
The project of an integration center in Geneva is in the development. The 100% BIO-sustainable center will be dedicated to children and families who are facing challenges in terms of well-being in Geneva. Low-income families facing well-being challenges are sources of social problems, especially families with children, who end up being the center of attention and nervousness.
A peaceful place where high potential students from Brazil could work as six-months internship in the disciplins of social management, international relations, operational support and well-being as such as psychologist and nutrionist.
Emotional treatments through psychology, nutrition, yoga, meditation and alternative methods will also be offered to families for a better journey of integration and well-being.
The training space inside the center will be providing courses about Integration and well-being towards parents and kids families, french and english languages and sustainability. Partnerships with local schools, professors and volunteers will be the way to make it happens.
Other spaces like green corner (bio-shop) and domestic animals corner will be also worked-out to make the center even more sustainable.
The center will have highly trained professionals in psychology, nutrition, yoga, meditation and sustainability to better promote the integration and well-being of families and children.
The public health sector is over saturated and it depends on social initiatives to soften that. Our project helps to promote well-being and self-care, to encourage social inclusion, and to build community and individua resilience. This is essential to mitigate the oversaturated public health sector from a medium-long term perspective.
There is not sustainable development where there is not education. ABC NGO was born to promote education beyond low-income families from Brazil as its 2030 sustainability agenda.
More than 76 million Brazilian are below 24 years age.
More than 50% of the families in Brazil are always fighting to survive.
"The dream, which has been so far away, begins to come true.
The initiative that united three major institutions around a common goal: to provide an international internship experience to students from low-income families will open up my horizon and, without a doubt, the doors of my career.
Going beyond my borders and experiencing new cultures will be a great opportunity for my personal and professional path,
as well as enabling an intense exchange of knowledge with all those
who will face this journey with me.
I hope to contribute with the experiences
that I already have
and to return with the suitcase full of experiences,
learnings and new opportunities! "
I live in Carapicuíba, West Zone of Greater São Paulo, I studied my whole life in public schools and now I am an student of administration as discipline at the University of São Paulo (USP).
Since I started the course I have felt a great difference between the people who came from the periphery and those who came from families with better living conditions.
The first ones have to work to help at home, while the second ones are able to devote more time to studies and extracurricular activities, which gives them advantages when it comes to applying for exchange. That is, despite the latest inclusion policies, there are still some gaps. The project gave us the chance to have an international experience over during our course at university’s time, which is very important for us, whether in the professional field or in the personal life.
I hope to learn a lot from another culture, speak another language fluently and develop as a differentiated professional in my professional market.
Have been selected to participate in the Perspective program Project Brazil & France is the opportunity to fulfill a dream:
develop in order to act in an international environment and of multiculturalism becoming a protagonist of the process of change
that I want to see in the world: more people as potential agents of impact. And for me, leadership is the key to impact, because it aligns knowledge and action. Challenging experiences such as this one offered
by the ABC NGO, Peter-Luise-Hager Foundation and FEAUSP, is the path
to reach it.
The process so far is well organized, transparent and already
a challenge that is to learn French. In addition, we have an effective communication with people involved in the process, always
in asking questions and directing us in this preparation period.
I am very grateful to this opportunity and I am very excited about the internship!
