Fundação Dora Frazão
Dora Frazão is a nonprofit Organization created in 2011 to improve the lives of families in the rural areas surrounding Brasília. Dora Frazão operates as a community, cultural, and educational center that brings together members of the community to strengthen our social capital. Our mission is to provide the tools for families so that they can build the capacity to meet their needs.
We are currently working with 150 families through the “Programa Uma Luz no Meu Caminho”. Some of the initatives within this program include English and Spanish courses, environmental projects, and income generating workshops for adolescents and adults.
Currently, we hold English classes for youth and adults, daytime and nighttime. We are working on a community garden, as well, that will generate leaders in our communities, and help youth engage with nature and agriculture in an array of ways. We also administer a community health program that works with members of the community on a personal level to understand the health needs of our families.
We have many different ways to get involved. Please email us to inquire about volunteering opportunities.
