Two weeks ago, the families being cared for in ECD's two homes participated in a fun workshop called ′′Let's Combine"!
The aim of the workshop was to promote team work, work together in building rules, and find positive ways to coexist in harmony.
The pandemic has brought many complex challenges, not least that of living and working together. I mean, who hasn't bickered with their friends/family/housemates because they've been stuck indoors together too long?!
These workshops are a breath of fresh air and help strengthen those familial bonds. ⛓💝

Back in September, Viva Institute came to visit! They brought training and lectures on topics linked to depression and suicide, an issue that is affecting so many of us now more than ever.
Not only was there an incredible opportunity to discuss this ever-growing difficulty, the training was also free! 💕
Thank you, Viva Institute for this chance to discuss crucial issues, raise awareness, and save lives.
This partnership has been such a blessing for ECD 💛💙💚

These fantastic "Basic Baskets" have been a lifeline for vulnerable people in the community of Cajuru in the wake of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
A bit more info...
Each basket weighs 25kg, and can keep a family alive for a month.
Over 8 tonnes of food have been distributed.
Over 1300 families have been helped.
It's a wonder!

We have all ended up doing things we never thought we would do during this pandemic: doing keepyups with a toilet roll... learning TikTok dances... volunteering with a new community project... you name it!
Well, the wonderful staff at ECD have been out delivering these fantastic basic baskets, which has provided them with an opportunity to engage with their community in a way they never quite expected.
Check out some of the vital items that have been delivered to vulnerable families! ... See MoreSee Less
Making learning fun!
We have all had to learn to adapt in this strange time. Many university classes have gone online, children are in bubbles in schools, and many of us are being asked to work from home where possible.
It's so sad to say that the Community Centre is still closed, but look at the creative way that the ECD staff are still working with children in the community!
The images below are from a video where staff were asked to fetch different objects whilst pretending to be farmyard animals 🐥🐓 Here, a teacher at ECD shows families how they can help children learn in a fun way, practising numbers and colours!🔢🖍

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to Unimed Curitiba, who have provided an outstanding donation to ECD Brasil through their Income Tax this year.
We are so grateful for this partnership which has helped fund vital work including providing hygiene boxes to vulnerable members of the community and supporting families!

Unimed Curitiba are a fantastic partner to Encontro Com Deus.
This virtual coffee morning was a great initiative to talk about Inclusion, in a time where it is even more important than ever to break down barriers and open doors of opportunity for young people.
These discussions are so important and ECD are proud to be a part of them.
