Commitment to Action

Telecurso at the Amazon - A Youth and Adult Education

Commitment by

Roberto Marinho Foundation

In 2008 the Roberto Marinho Foundation (FRM) committed to expanding Telecurso, Brazil's most comprehensive youth and adult learning acceleration program, to the states of Amazonas, Amapa as well as other states in the Brazilian Amazon Region.
In 2008, FRM expanded Telecurso to other states in the Brazilian Amazon Region and continued the implementation of the 'Poronga' Project in Acre, by using Telecurso's methodology and materials (all conceived and developed by FRM). The Project is still in the implementation phase, with full support and participation of local education authorities. As of July 2010 it was reaching approximately 5,000 students in the state of Amazonas plus approximately 17,000 students in the state of Acre. The project was featured in CGI's video showcase prepared by the Students of the World (SOW).
