About our project “the Capacity for Inclusion”.
The project Capacitar para Incluir was started in 2015, and it provides a course in professional training for disabled people. Each participant has a ‘father’ or ‘mother’ figure who takes care of them and guides them through the various sectors of the Lasallian educational community. The aim is to provide qualifications in adminstration, which will give people the opportunity to enter the world of work and develop them as active citizens.
The Lasallian groups participating in the project are: Porto Alegre/RS – La Salle Dores, La Salle Esmeralda, Mantenedora da Rede La Salle, La Salle Pão dos Pobres, La Salle São João, La Salle Santo Antônio, Região Metropolitana/RS – La Salle Canoas, Centro de Pastoral, La Salle Esteio, La Salle Niterói, La Salle Sapucaia and the Universidade La Salle.
