SARA PROJECT NGO Rural
Adolescent Learning Service - SARA
WTA collaborates with the Young Apprentice program developed by the NGO SARA.
The SARA NGO was created in 1995 by an initiative of the Public Prosecutor's Office (SP), the Regional Labor Office, civil society and human rights entities, with a view to curbing the exploitation of child labor in sugarcane cutting in the region of Ribeirão Preto. At the time, in our region there were a legion of approximately 4,000 children and adolescents working in sugarcane cutting, almost all of them outside regular education, with a delay of approximately 5 years in the educational process and at risk. Given this context, the NGO SARA comes under the aegis of the ECA and with the desire to defiantly build an association that provides a place of social promotion to the excluded adolescent, at risk and social vulnerability, coming from needy, regularly enrolled families in elementary and middle school aged between 12 and 18 incomplete years, in the municipality of Cravinhos.
Young People: Theater, Dance, Music, Singing, Percussion, Storytelling, Circus and Citizenship
Young Apprentice and Educating Worker: Training Courses for Insertion in the Labor Market, Professional Qualification Courses in Administrative Assistant, Accounting Assistant and Quality Inspector.
Through this program, WTA has at least 10 young adolescent learners who develop skills that enable them to perform professionally.
This partnership has been going on for 10 years and we only have to be proud of it, as it helps to minimize the impacts of the new social reality, it helps us to identify young talents.
