What we do
Get to know Era Uma Vez
Our organizations aims to teach children from low-income backgrounds in Brazil how to write and publish their own non-fictional or fictional stories while cultivating a love for writing, a passion for reading, and an appreciation for creativity and collaboration. Our goal is to encourage commitment to learning and literacy by making it enjoyable and relatable.
Through weekly workshops, students are guided through a detailed curriculum that teaches them the process behind story creation while putting pen, paper, and their imaginations together. At the end of the workshop, students leave as accomplished young authors with a published version of their completed story in the form of a physical, thoughtfully-crafted book.
