    In this VV Action in partnership with the NGO Ascendendo Mentes, we are going to promote a morning full of exchanges and teachings between our volunteers and the young girls assisted by the NGO. There will be conversation circles and chat about female empowerment, personal autonomy, financial independence, decision-making and insertion of women in the labor market. The activities will be led by our guest volunteer Haisa Hofmann, who has a background in Marketing with an emphasis on entrepreneurship and leadership.


    Porto Alegre is the capital of Rio Grande do Sul, it is the most populous city in the State and the 12th in Brazil, with approximately 1,500,000 inhabitants. Economically, it is the most important city in the state and the 7th in the country, a pleasant and very touristic city. However, currently the number of people living on the poverty line has increased considerably. Something that was aggravated by the Covid-19 pandemic. 

    With that in mind, we teamed up with the NGO Ascendendo Mentes, which aims to encourage young people in vulnerable situations by facilitating their access to education and professional qualification aimed at entering the job market. The Institute is located in the neighborhood of Glória, in Porto Alegre, and covers 6 communities: Cel. Aparício Borges, Cascata, Morro do Embratel, São José, Police Hill and Parthenon.
