MINA DE OURO PROJECT
Guiding at-risk girls to the best version of themselves.
The "Mina de Ouro" project was created during the 7th edition of the WFUNA's Human Rights in Action training, at the United Nations headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, as an effort to develop a Human Right's project aimed at promoting personal, educational and professional development of at-risk teenage girls living at the Joana Miguel Richa socio-educational center in Curitiba, state of Paraná, Brazil. "Mina de ouro" means goldmine in Portuguese, but "mina" also means "girl" and "de ouro" also means "of value". We believe in the value of at-risk girls and we want to be a part in their path to a better future.
We organize presentations, activities and trainings to develop skills that are relevant to the job market, to empower, to promote talents and to bring dreams closer to reality.
Make it Happen
Our partner, the Do it Today Project shares behavioral economics methods to help overcome personal obstacles and accomplish life goals. The girls learn to follow their plans without losing focus.
We look for opportunities of scholarships, courses, internships and apprenticeships to ensure enriching experiences and to encourage the teenagers to build a better future and to contribute to society.
