  1. UFSC adaptado – Investment in education is essential to improve the quality of life where people face major social problems. Read the text about a non-governmental initiative on the matter, the Living Library project.
The Living Library
1.      From the mid 40's to the 70's, many big cities in Brazil expanded because of internal migrations. During those years, with the intensification of social problems, many non-governmental organizations were created and many existing Community Centers increased their activities to provide non-formal education for children and adolescents after school hours.

2.      The Living Library is a two-year project that aims at making the act of reading and writing as an everyday activity for poor children and their teachers. This would mean fewer failures in elementary school and more children learning about their reality and how to change it. These libraries are being implanted in Community Centers in charge of children and adolescents living in the poor districts of the peripheral area of the big cities, where huge slums and acute social problems are concentrated. To achieve its objective the Project team provides personal development for the community teachers by preparing them to work with books and reading activities in the context of poverty and deprivation of their institutions. Each library is unique, taking into account the needs and the culture of the community where it is located.

3.      Forty-four institutions took part in the selective process. Among those, 10 were chosen to receive the library: two in Brasília and eight in São Paulo. Fourteen community teachers went through a 44 hour training program. The first 10 libraries received 4,000 books directly benefiting 2,500 children and adolescents.

4. The first 10 libraries were implanted and are open to the community. They attend institutions that look after street children from slums in the suburbs, children living in poor houses downtown, children living in shelters, who have no parents or are temporarily separated from them.
