Co-founder of ASID, Brazil

ASID Brasil (Social Action for the Equality of Differences) has been working since 2010 to develop qualified management for philanthropic Schools and Care Centers for people with disabilities by providing free services to these institutions. This methodology has two objectives: to raise the quality of education and/or treatment and to increase the number of spaces available, since it is estimated that today there is a waiting list of tens of thousands of families who are in need around the country and cannot find the necessary care.

Since the beginning of its activities, ASID’s actions have been enhanced, going beyond Administrative Assistance to Corporate Volunteer Programs and the creation of Networks and Alliances in favor of the institutions. Until 2014, 23 institutions from Curitiba had been benefitted, as activities were taken up in Foz do Iguaçu and in two other states: Santa Catarina, in the city of Joinville, and São Paulo, in Cubatão.
