Casa do Saber

What is the Casa do Saber?

The Casa do Saber is a Social, Educational and Cultural community enterprise arising from the action of Emaus Amor e Justica, and it’s the hub of alternative education in the greater Pirambu area.

At the Casa do Saber we aim to strengthen learning and community integration with society, improving education in three areas: cultural, technological and social. We offer such services as tutoring, computer classes, capoeira, dance, music, and art courses ...

We serve mainly children and youth, but we also offer activities directed at adults.

This project aims to raise the environmental awareness of the community we serve. Each student of the Casa de Saber brings at least five kilograms of recyclables (glass, cardboard, PET bottles etc) per month to offset the operating costs of the Casa. Through this program, we aim to instill in our students a sense of environmental responsibility as well as clean up the streets of our neighborhoods.
