The Sherlock São Paulo team comes to Rio
Some of the São Paulo team landed in gorgeous Rio de Janeiro recently for a well deserved escape from the winter cold for a weekend of strategic planning and a communications workshop with our good friends and partners at Educate the Favela.
Educate the Favela are a small NGO who hold entrepreneurship classes and mentoring for youths and collaborative art projects in the excluded communities of Complexo do Alemão, Olária and Rocinha in Rio, offering young people alternative pathways to success and empowerment.
On Saturday the two teams piled into an apartment in Ipanema to collaborate on a new communications strategy for the growing project, discussing how to attract more volunteers, reach new participants, and tell people about the fantastic work they do.
As a business in Brazil, we have an absolute responsibility to put something back into the community, and it is for this reason we like to work with selected partners who we can see delivering tangible benefits to the community around them. We feel that this is one of the best ways we can contribute; by offering our expertise and time to help worthwhile organisations to grow and deliver on their potential to help vulnerable people.
If you would like to help this project, either by making a donation, or as a volunteer, get in touch with them at firstname.lastname@example.org
