Our Campinas Chapter has chosen a charity local to Campinas members.
What is Grupo Primavera
This is a community center that provides crucial educational assistance, career training, and social guidance to 480 at-risk youths in Campinas.
Established in 1981 by Jade Sieh, Chinese-American Sociologist, the NGO was originally designed to help women in Campinas escape prostitution. Sieh quickly learned that most of the prostitutes were from Jardim Sao Marcos, and after acquainting herself with the community, shifted her focus to prevention. Grupo began offering continuing education and vocational programs to the school age girls in the community. The program eventually grew to serve 141 girls, however, government funding was suspended until Grupo agreed to accept boys into the program. Grupo agreed and the agency now provides education and training to girls and boys of the Jardim Sao Marcos community.
