What is Vivenda da Criança?

Vivenda da Criança is a community center located in Parelheiros, in the outskirts of São Paulo.  The community center receives some government funding and runs three programs:  the “Social Education Program” (Programa Sócio Educativo), which offers complementary schooling to 150 children, ranging from 7 to 14 years old; and the “Family Action Program”(Programa Ação Família), which provides social assistance to more than 1,000 local families, and “Project Transformation”(Projeto Mutação), which provides computer training and other classes to help young people enter the job market. 

Our Story 

The institution was founded almost 20 years ago by Sister Ivonne, a Franciscan nun, who started Vivenda as a home for boys she encountered living on the streets in the surrounding neighborhood. As the needs of the community changed over the years, Vivenda has adapted to a center that serves a much larger portion of the community.  Sister Ivonne has recently retired from operational management but remains on the board of the directors.
