For Maria dos Prazeres, mother of João Abraão, a student at AEC, who participated in the program for the 11th, which had the cinema session, the moment was remarkable. “We had never come to the cinema. I loved watching the movie with my son. So far, I can’t believe that after 40 years of age I managed to come to the cinema. I’m being a child again, ”she said with emotion.
In Marabá, on 10/15, the Institute took 45 children from the Child and Adolescent Assistance Foundation – FUNCAD, located in Marabá – Amapá neighborhood, for a walk in the Zoobotanical Park of Marabá.
