Katia, Aline, Karina – Projeto TransformAção CSEUR (TransformAction CSEUR)
TransformAction CSEUR is project developed by Aonde Environmental Institute and its main goal is to contribute to the socio-environmental development of CSEUR’s interns. CSEUR, which stands for Centro Socioeducativo de Uberaba (Socio-educational Center of Uberaba – Brazil) is an institution which aims to rehabilitate young offenders under 18 years. The goal will be reached through the practice of a range of activities related to the environment, healthy eating, well-being and entrepreneurship, aiming at improving not only the environment in which they are inserted, but the community as a whole.
Often, these young offenders come from poorer, marginalized families and have not had enough opportunities to development, mainly due to the lack of incentives and investments in infrastructure and social programs so many times experienced in developing countries. Once they are in rehabilitation institutions, the problem tends to persist and not enough opportunities to personal development are offered.
