Project Overview

Get out of misery thanks to a carpenter training after Swiss-model. This is the goal of the project-responsible organization Gira Solidário, which offers each year up to 15 young people from the favelas a chance to overcome poorness. An apprenticeship requires CHF 5'000.- per year and person. With this crowd-funding project we would like to be able to finance up to two apprenticeships for one year.

Rescuing a young person from drowning is a great but unique act. Teaching him how to swim is an investment for his whole life (Onorio Mansutti)


The NPO GIRA Solidário Brasil in Campo Grande offers up to 15 young people the chance of a future worth living. This by providing a carpenter's apprenticeship based on the Swiss model, but taking into account the brazilian culture. These young people receive an excellent training. Certified specialists of GIRA Solidário from socio-pedagogical and technical fields comprehensively train the young people and prepare them for an independent life.
