I started at SASEF helping a little bit to connect his nonprofit to other NGOs in my hometown. The work developed by SASEF was so prefessional and seirous that I decided to help it more and more.When we wrote together the Library Project and brought partners like Germany Consulate, UNESCO and YMCA I felt really happy. But the greatest moment was to see the 1st library opened, with over 500 books, DVDs, toys and love:the children reading and getting excited with the books was breathtaking to me. Until today I remember the look on their faces. Now we are building another one and I think the feeling will be the same. One of the more inspirational moment we had these past days was the news that one of our boys was hired in a great Hotel:his first job and we are part of this for we helped him with workshops and curriculum. Working for SASEF has been quite a journey: the love we feel for avery single member and volunteer are very strong, although we do not know each other in person, but we know by heart. I truly belive in SASEF's mission to erradicate poverty, one child at a time.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
when we developed and built the library project: The International Reading Corners -Safe spaces to discover the world and when we had the First Job Workshop at MIllenium Flat Hotel.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the fact that we can do small things and still make a difference in someone's life!
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
very committed and happy for doing a work with love and care.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Open more libraries, pay an English teacher to Brazilians' children and youth, help theyoung people to find a job and fighting against drugs.
