Education and Knowledge

We promote the access to inclusive quality education, entrepreneurism and social innovation. Instilling a change in the behaviour of young people and the communities by acknowledging the merit of students and teachers.

Education Projects are essentially about promoting learning opportunities for all. It is with the mission of raising awareness and making the entire community responsible for the importance of education and citizenship that we promote and implement such initiatives.

The focus of the developed projects is based on the challenges of sustainability, posed by the necessity of preservation of our Planet, where it is intended to recognize the merit, of students and teachers, entrepreneurship and innovation.

Partnership with Bagos d’Ouro Association

About a quarter of the Portuguese population, 23%, are at risk of poverty or exclusion, those most affected are single-parent families and those with three or more dependent children. The Northern Region is one of the regions with the highest poverty rate in the country and in Europe, particularly in the communities located in the Douro. (*Sources: Eurostat, 2015 and 2017).

Promoting education is one of the most valid ways to reverse the cycle of social exclusion, a cause we share with Bagos d'Ouro Association share.
