Sustainable and Social actions
“Santa Cruz Library”: 52 children spend from 8 to 10 hours per week at this space, developing different skills, which we believe that will be important for their life and for the community. It is an extra school activity, completely independent from governmental and public investments. Teacher, material, rent and all other costs are completely covered by Fazenda Santa Cruz.
Theater for kids: Aiming to introduce traditional tales to the children from the community, we developed a new project where literary histories are readen and played by the kids, promoting their creativity, group abilities, and cultural knowledge. During the year, the children choose one tale that will be played in a theatre for the families, farm’s employees and community, celebrating the year ending.
Project “Happy Child”: Now a days, children, independently of the economic situation, are used to spend their free time playing electronic games alone, watching television, etc. In this modern scenario, we developed a project to introduce old and traditional games for the children, where they could play together games that strengthen their creativity, their ability to deal with different people with different believes and educations, etc. They could develop socializing skills, looking to each other needs and taking care of their relationships with their friends. In a time where people are becoming more and more selfish, we believe that the social ability to discuss different opinions and realities is essential for a better world.
