Our After School Program supports children from the favelas Pavão-Pavãozinho and Cantagalo, to help them further develop their personal and academic skills. Like all our other programs, this program is free.
4 days a week our children aged 8 to 12 have classes on the premises of Manjedoura in Quebra-Braço in Cantagalo. The program is developed based on the childrens’ needs. It includes Yoga, Portuguêse, homework assistance, English lessons, Social-Emotional Learning (Positive Discipline) and creative learning (such as theater, games sports, outdoor activity).
In order to best support the development of our children, we focus on having the same children in the program for a predefined period of time. We believe that a good balanced program that includes academic and personal development, but also includes creative and physical activities is the best way of preparing our children for their future, a future that we at EduMais try to make brighter!
We provide these children with healthy snacks; like fruit salads and sandwiches.
Our motivated and committed volunteers run this After School Program with a lot of love, attention and dedication.
