In 2007, we had 200 children, of whom 31% were deprecated in school. Through study groups, developed strategies and targets set in 2013 that number dropped to only 3%. Therefore, the Department of Sports of Rio de Janeiro embraced the project and began to support it. The result is that today we have a consolidated project, with an athlete playing in Barcelona and the Brazilian national team, playing in other pines, and at various clubs throughout Brazil, “said Joel Dutra, coach of the team representing the school in most student competition in the country, and one of the brave teachers who carry the wonderful work.
