Gerando falcões - Expansion

How will we take poverty from the favela to the museum

Since the formation of Morro da Providência, the first favela in Rio de Janeiro, almost 122 years of history have gone by. Today, there are more than 13 thousand favelas, which are home to around 14 million Brazilians. To stand up against this problem may seem like an inglorious, even utopian battle. But that's where our obsession resides. At Gerando Falcões, we are creating viable social technologies, with the potential to be replicated in scale, to transform the poverty of the favela into a museum piece.

It is through new leaderships and accelerated units that we are going to fight this problem. Our expansion plan is to train social leaders throughout Brazil. They are the protagonists of our 3D redevelopment project of Brazilian favelas, bringing a Dignified, Digital and Developed environment to its residents. By 2023, we will be present around 2,990 favelas, in addition to maintaining our Own Units as pillars for our entire network to have autonomy and independence.

Our workshops, financed through the Culture and Sport Incentive Law, are focused on our own methodology developed by Falcons University, in addition to the follow-up and development of the family take-off plan.

Acceleration Program

The Acceleration Program aims to develop high-impact NGOs in the Gerando Falcões Network. Over a period of four years, organizations receive, in addition to financial support, support and development in management in the areas of human resources, communication, finance, fundraising, and innovation. It is through the Excellence Program within Acceleration that we measure the development of the units in terms of social impact and management and recognize them in terms of excellence, with different seals and awards.

App Gerando Falcões

What is it?

With the pandemic, thousands of children and teenagers from slums and suburbs were at home without access to education. Young people who could suffer in the future from the lack of study support during this period. Thus, the project was created to bring access to education to this audience through distance learning, with the use of an app, sponsored internet and new and semi-new devices. Taking, in addition to traditional disciplines, workshops and professional and social-emotional training for young people. Currently, on the platform, we have over 3,700 classes available. In all, we had more than 12 thousand registered students from 320 favelas and almost half a million accesses.

Goal

In addition to providing access to educational and quality content for children and young people from the periphery and slums, the project also aims to maintain links with the Propria Units, Accelerated Units, and Fellows of the Gerando Falcões Network.

FUNCTIONALITY

To keep it running and make continuous improvements, we have a development team that works to improve the application based on student assessments. Internet access works only with the cell phone chip, without the need to use mobile data networks or Wi-Fi, while cell phones were purchased in partnership with companies, as well as donations of equipment in good working order, which would be discarded and today they are used by students.
