Dream Learn Work (DLW) which is also a Norwegian-initiated social project, finances occupational courses for disadvantaged children in Rio de Janeiro. In 2014, Karanba had 17 participants who graduated after completed courses at DLW. The courses included everything from general courses within Hydraulic, Mechanics, and Automatics, to more specific courses of Welding, CAD, and Logistics.
On Saturday February the 28th, DLW invited the students with parents and guardians to a graduation event in the premises of the day-care center FENASE, a private social initiative that over many years has been supported by different Norwegian companies with operations in Brazil. The project is located near the town of Niteroi, which is the neighboring municipality of Sao Goncalo.
During the ceremony, the Karanba participant Edson Arthur da Silva Junior held a speech for all the participants telling his personal story about his time in Karanba and how important it was for him that he got opportunity of further education through DLW.
The story illustrated the importance of the cooperation between DLW and Karanba. It also showed how well the two organizations' activities complement each other.
The long term participation within the Karanba project, builds good values and attitudes, and gives fertile grounds for new goals and dreams of its participants. DLW then creates new life opportunities for our participants by funding courses that are relevant for further job search and / or increased education.
