Learning and Transforming

An itinerant project in partnership with the electric/electronic/furniture shop Casas Bahia that offers free courses on entrepreneurism and employability in cities all around the country – cities where one finds a branch of the shop. Learning and Transforming continues and is ever expanding; see the Friends of the Planet – Digital Inclusion, which, from 2009 to 2015 has already benefited over 45,000 people. The courses and lectures offered are free and within reach to anybody who is at least 14 years old. We exert our own methodology, the educators, who are also trained by us, are local professionals – that guarantees the integration among students, as well as benefiting the community by way of temporary jobs brought about by the project.
