Bunge Foundation - Projects - Educational Community

Environmental Initiative

A Sustainable School Project

The Education Community is a Bunge Brazil corporate volunteer program designed to encourage reading in schools and community centers to contribute to the development of citizens skilled in reading, conscious of their role in the present and committed to the future.

Pillars of Action of the Sustainable School:

  • Man's relation to nature and its preservation
  • Relations with the community and its culture
  • The development of reading promoters

Action Fronts:

  • The development of reading promoters
  • The creation and revitalization of reading spaces
  • Mobilization events

The Tree Book

The Tree Book is a kit - composed of children's literature books, a rug, cushions and a panel in the form of a tree - set up in schools and community centers for the purpose of promoting new opportunities for reading.

It is part of a work proposal intended not only to create and revitalize reading spaces, but to also develop reading promoters and events to mobilize the community.

All this work counts on the support of the Semear Leitores [Seeding Readers] blog, which allows the exchange of experiences and the training of the Education Community work group.
