Basecamp / Exchange

Goal

To make the exchange student experience the reality of the periphery, to create a bond with the people of the community and to develop a social work according to the reality of each one.

About the Project

In Jardim dos Alamos we have a large community, known as campo. In it reside people in high index of vulnerability. People do not have a fixed address, do not receive correspondence, do not have basic sanitation. The going of health professionals is rare. With this in mind, the ProBrasil Association decided to create a project so that the exchange students can experience what it is like to live in a community and from that, they can develop works that contribute to a better quality of life.
