Parceiros da Educação RJ – Fund of BrazilFoundation

Supporting Public Education for a More Equal Society

Education transforms. Education creates opportunities. Education changes lives. More than 80% of school-age children in Brazil attend public schools. Therefore, the way to reduce discrepancies between public and private education and reduce societal inequalities is by investing in public schools.

Since 2009, Parceiros RJ has impacted more than 60,000 children in Rio’s public schools, and provided training to more than 800 teachers and administrators in 27 schools.

In 2021 alone, Parceiros RJ is working with 24 public schools, reaching 8,000 students.
