Partners gather to discuss on project management qualification

On 11-12 September, representatives of UNESCO in Brazil, coordinators of Criança Esperança Spaces (Espaços Criança Esperança - ECE) and of Globo TV will gather in Rio de Janeiro to discuss and to reflect on the work undertaken at the ECEs. In the 8th Seminar on Management were also presented the results of consultations carried out at the 1st semester of 2013, which was followed by the execution of work plans of each Space, outstanding the innovations and changes introduced in 2012.

Initiatives such as this one aim at developing improvement strategies at ECEs and the revision of procedures used in order to consolidate the Criança Esperança Project and to improve the quality of the work developed in the Spaces. Since 2012, besides the management process, there have been discussion on issues related to the pedagogical proposals, the adequacy of the projects with the local communities’ context where they are inserted, and the new demands put in place to the beneficiary public, among others.

The meetings taken place in 2012 began the revision process of the Project models together with the coordinators of the ECEs, taking into account various aspects such as the variations on collecting donations, the new local reality configurations, the complexity and uniqueness of each Space, the priorities and points of view of the partner institutions. There have also been considered the process of evaluation results of the Criança Esperança Spaces carried out by H. Metric enterprise, which have brought significant subsidies for thinking about the future of the project.

The Criança Esperança Spaces (ECEs) were created between the years of 2001 and 2003 to be reference centres in assisting children, adolescents and youth members of low income families in four different communities situated in the most vulnerable regions of the cities of Rio de Janeiro (Cantagalo/Pavão/Pavãozinho), São Paulo (Brasilândia), Belo Horizonte (Aglomerado da Serra), and most recently in Jaboatão dos Guararapes (Socorro). The centres’ objective is to contribute to the strengthening of communities and boundaries, providing education, culture and social inclusion and social development.
