VGC’s Educate for Change is an international initiative that puts money back into NGO’s that support education in developing countries.
VGC International College is proud to be partners with a Brazilian NGO. For each Brazilian student that attends VGC, we give a dollar a day to Casa do Zezinho. The collected funds are utilized to purchase school supplies and goods aimed to assist low income families interested in improving themselves through education.
Located in what is called the “triangle of death” (between Jardim Angela, Jardim Sao Luiz and Capao Redondo in the outskirts of Sao Paulo), Casa do Zezinho educates children and young adults that live below the poverty line. Most live in no more than two room shacks with the rest of their family members (usually up to 10 people), immersed in violence inside and outside their homes.
Please note: Donations are made in tangible goods such as: textbooks, pens, and paper. VGC International College does not benefit from any tax breaks.
