Philanthropic entity founded in 1967 by a group of parents to provide assistance to individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (Down Syndrome and Cerebral Palsy). At its core, it serves 120 children, youth, and adults on a part-time and full-time basis, aiming to offer conditions that promote their social inclusion, family integration, autonomy, and citizenship through various activities. The organization is sustained through an agreement with the Municipal Government of São Paulo, event organization, contributions from members, and donations from individuals and businesses in the community.


        • Occupational Workshops: These workshops aim to progressively work on self-esteem and self-confidence. Their purpose is to develop actions that emphasize the cognitive, physical, emotional, and ethical capacities of the user, facilitating their socialization and inclusion in the regular education network. This is achieved through content predominantly focused on practical activities and situations that enable overall development, integrating knowledge into the exercise of citizenship. Main activities include painting, gardening, dance, theater, music, arts, leisure, physical activity, and recreation. The focus is not on the work itself but on seeking the independence, responsibility, and social inclusion of the user. The workshops are divided into: craft, interactive I (interactive games), interactive II (interaction dynamics between the user and family), thematic (development of themes related to their daily life), gardening and garden (planting vegetables and plant care), and cooking.

        • Cooking Workshop: Promotes the learning of basic needs, such as serving oneself, eating independently, using utensils, table etiquette, preparation of simple recipes, socialization, social and personal independence. The project is directly supervised by chefs José Parrelli and Camila Malacrida. The equipment was donated by the International Rotary Club in partnership with the Alto da Mooca Rotary Club, among other collaborators.

        • Computer Science: The new Computer Science room has 10 computers. In programs like Word, users practice typing and learn word formation.
