Visita do IAC ao município de MARCO-CE

In June, the IAC visited the municipality of Marco-Ce with the objective of starting a partnership with the Department of Education, Sport and Culture of the municipality. The moment had as proposal to present the social projects developed by the IAC and to offer a Workshop of Construction and Elaboration of Project of Social Intervention for the teachers of the public network of education.

Initially 15 teachers participated in the training. The IAC's proposal was to encourage public school teachers to contribute to the development of intervention projects that would minimize the social problems faced by adolescents and young people in the municipality of Marco. Increasingly young people and adolescents are becoming involved and inserted in a context of social vulnerability, being victims almost every day of the violence. According to the teachers who participated in the workshop, there is still no training project aimed at adolescents and young people that can motivate them to perceive other opportunities and choices.

At the end of the workshop were donated 63 books "The Blessing was not by chance, the story of Vilmar Ferreira". The books were delivered to the Department of Education, Sport and Culture of the municipality, the proposal is that all Public Schools of the Municipality of Marco have the book in their libraries.
The IAC also visited the ABAV - Association Beneficiente Amigos por la Vida-Bom Samaritano, a shelter that welcomes the elderly in the municipality of Marco. This institution receives financial support from IAC. The IAC's next visit to the municipality of Marco is scheduled for the month of August with the goal of holding the Pedalando por Paz event.
