Even with hard conditions for the 2020 school year, all elementary and high school teachers and students, including those admitted to the Education for Youngsters and Adults program in 32 native villages identified within the Veracel’s indirect influence area, received more than 5,000 school kits donated by Veracel in 2020.
By seeking to develop the community associations’ entrepreneurship in the region and sustainable projects, Veracel entered into a partnership with the Sebrae Sustainable Entrepreneur program. Courses about management in the field, awakening of associations and quality were provided as well advices on entrepreneurial management.
In addition, the partnership with the National Service for Commercial Learning (SENAC), aligned with agreements with city halls and community associations, has promoted training for administrative assistant, sewing and gastronomy professionals. In total, more than 300 people have been trained since the beginning of this program.
