Summary

Rio de Janeiro is home to the Atlantic Rainforest, a biodiversity hotspot of the world, and at the same time, almost 2 million people live in favelas: narrow slums full of concrete and with poor infrastructure.SINAL provides an outdoor living laboratory for children from undeserved communities that take environmental learning journeys, art and meditation classes and enjoy the outdoors!

Challenge

The segregation of the city of Rio allows for many wonderful public spaces for those living in the developed parts of the city, while 25% of the population live in favelas with poor education or recreational spaces. Children have little contact with the natural environment, or have the opportunity to reflect about themselves, their hopes and dreams.

Solution

Sinal do Vale is a living laboratory in the Atlantic Rainforest where children from undeserved communities can have a safe space to learn with hands-on activities about the cycles of nature and the importance of biodiversity, as well as art, meditation and games to enjoy the wide spaces in the outdoors.

Long-Term Impact

We believe that long-term, we inspire these children to have a deeper respect and care for nature, sharing it with their families and transforming improving their respect to nature and sustainability practices. We also believe that in the long run, we help them cultivate an inner resilience and knowledge of themselves that contributes to their development.
