A little about who we are

The Institute for Local Integrated Development Casa do Jardim was founded in April 2007 in order to improve quality of life for children and their families in developing communities in Brazil.

We currently serve the community of Jardim Canada in Nova Lima, Minas Gerais, Brazil. With the objective of contributing to the development of the future leaders of the community, we offer academic and personal enrichment activities to children 6 to 12 years. We also work with the families and public schools of these children so that, together, we can contribute toward developing the potential of each child.

The Institute also conducts research about the history, socio-demographic reality and local identity of the community and region, which serves to orient our work.

"In the beginning, our support was motivated by internal reasons. Today, we support Casa do Jardim because of its local reputation and the impact it is making in the community."
