"What matters is the truth and the knowledge transfer. The more our society realizes what its problems are, the better the country will be." Alexandre Soares dos Santos
This initiative was born of an idea from our sponsors, Teresa and Alexandre Soares dos Santos, who have always seen education as the key to young people progressing and the country succeeding.
The Education Initiative wants to help young people achieve success, by supporting exemplary projects with the potential to be replicated in the educational system and society at large. Our promoters approved the beginning of the activities with three projects that aim to promote reading and literacy, enhance professional training, and disseminate knowledge and information about education.
Pupils throughout the country are already taking part in professional courses established as part of the Being Pro programme. From courses on (nautical) tourism to precision agriculture, several training courses are being developed to meet local and national needs, with input from both schools and businesses.Know more
