A representative of EDISCA – Escola de Desenvolvimento e Integração Social para Criança e Adolescente (School of development and social integration for children and adolescents, in free translation) – one of the institutions selected by UNESCO to receive the resources from the campaign – was also present. Camila went to the school headquarters, in the city of Fortaleza, to learn about the work carried out there.

From the beginning of June, the 30 mobilizers have been visiting projects in every region of the country. The public will be able to watch several of these visits over the next few weeks in the broadcasting schedule of Globo TV, as well as in the news and entertainment coverage.
