Vivendo em Graça​

A Christian organization created in 2008 by Pastor Marinaldo Luiz who was sensitive to the situation of a mother who needed to leave her children at home alone to go to work, the institution serves about 500 children today. Although it is an institution that follows the pillars of the Evangelical Church they are a social arm of the Church Living in Grace. They are a secular space where everyone, regardless of their faith, can participate.


Through the support of the 12 CLT employees and eight fixed volunteers they develop the following projects:

  • Creche Vivendo em Graça: offers the 84 students psychological and pedagogical support, four meals per day: coffee, lunch, afternoon snack and full-time dinner from 8am to 5pm, aimed at children from 1 to 5 years old;
  • Gaditas do Tatame: aimed at children and young people from 7 to 25 years old, they perform activities of Muay Thai and Jiu Jitsu with the help of the Secretariat of Sport. 200 children in the community are served free of charge from Monday to Thursday from 9am to 11am and from 2pm to 4pm, operating in the school's intermediate hours. To participate in the project, the children must be enrolled in the school and the institution carries out the follow-up for verification;
  • Make a Happy Child: action is performed at the end of the year, in which they collect toys, clothes and shoes. 1500 children are registered and the data is made available to people who wish to participate, being able to become godparents and buy gifts for them. The items are delivered later by the institution at a large party held;
  • Christmas Right of All: they collect food, assemble baskets and distribute them to the families of the community, thereby Impacting the beneficiaries and contributing to the region's economy;
