I first came to know about Associação Saúde Criança through Ashoka. I was living temporarily in São Paulo at that time and learned that they had a franchise in Florianópolis, my home town. After learning about their work, I immediately sent them an email asking for a visit. I have to say I was truly impressed by their work and did not hesitate to become a volunteer. I had the pleasure to meet the amazing people who work there, and can attest that they are passionate about what they do. I had the chance to meet some of the women who participated in the program too, and could see how their lives have been changed through the support of ASC. The organization's work bring empowerment to women living in precarious conditions and help them increase their self-confidence, generate income to their families and have access to decent health care for their children. I strongly recommend this NGO for its ethical values, accountability and passion to execute its impactful mission.
I first heard about Saúde Criança in 1999. Being 19, this means it has been pretty much part of my whole life: my mother and aunt work there and my brother, my sister, my father and grandmother are volunteers. It's been amazing to see how much this organization can change lives and the passion of those involved.
Review from Guidestar
In 1998 a friend of mine invited me to visit Saude Criança. I visited the headquarters and soon became a volunteer, dealing directly with the families. From now on, I´ve seen lots of families having their lives transformed by the support of the project. I really appreciate the work done by the team and all the colaborators of this organization. Congratulations!
When I decided to be a volunteer, I had no doubt in choosing Saude Crianca. Its work is unbelievable! They are able to help very poor families with sick children and their job really works! Families stay in the program for around two years and, during this time, they are supported in all needed aspects: from financial with profissionalization courses until housing, education and, of course, their health. I am really glad to be part of this team and to be able to really impact people´s life. Congratulations Saude Crianca for this wonderful job!
I started as a volunteer at Saúde Criança in 1999 and since them I saw the institution grow and mature, I'm amazed by the great results that are achieved by the institution and with each family in the project! Nowadays my whole family is involved with Saúde Criança, as donnors, volunteers, advisors and whtever other hole the institution needs from us.
