Brazil: Creation of a training centre in Vila Pridente favela

One of the consequences of the unprecedented economic crisis that Brazil is currently going through is a rise in the unemployment rate, especially within the most vulnerable and least qualified segment of the population.  
Arca do Saber, a Franco-Brazilian NGO has been managing a center for children and teenagers for 15 years in Vila Pridente favela near Sao Paulo. The NGO now plans to build, next to this center, a professional training center for 15-24 year olds. The aim is to allow vulnerable young people to get  short but good quality training which provides a nationally recognized diploma, thereby allowing them to enter the job market quickly.  The new building will welcome 120 students during three different six month professional training periods.
