The Casa Viva project aims to work on the betterment of the human being. Active since 1999, teaching children (ages 4 to 6) how to read and write, as well as educating the children and their parents on the VIVE program - Vivendo Valores na Educação. Currently attending to 48 kids, Casa Viva focus on providing a safe harbor for both children and their families.
Admitted at around 4 years old the children and their parents are exposed to the program for three years on a semi-boarding basis. After that CASA VIVA will assist them in their studies, health care and social development until their adulthood.
CASA VIVA’s ultimate goal is to give to the society a responsible adult adjusted to his environment and happy with himself. The project aims to be self-supported through its publishing house, arts & crafts sales outlets, the rent of its dentistry facility and private sponsors.
The project is established at a house belonging to its managing council. It offers 700 m2 of built space in a lot of 1300 m2. In the future, the idea is to sell the property located in the city and move to a larger area in its outskirts.
