Who We Are?

Espaço Progredir is a CSO – Civil Society Organization. This name was chosen by its founders in 2003, wishing to create a space Where children and teenagers could progress (“Progredir”), grow, and become protagonists of their own story. 

I’m grateful to Progredir for making me dream and believe in life. Many thanks to all that are part of this. It’s not even been an year that I’m here, but it already changed my life, thank you for everything. I will always love you.

In the most difficult moments of our lives until now we had the opportunity to honor the friendship created in almost 20 years. The gratefulness comes naturally in my heart. The support in difficult times shows how we are and how we live. I ask God that you may remain in my life until my last day, and afterwards too, since I believe in the eternal life of the spirit.
