The collaboration of Grupo + Unidos, EBAC and other companies announces the Rede Amazônia + Conectada program to promote education and work in Juruti, Pará
Surrounding the Amazon, which is the largest rainforest in the world, is home to coastal communities, quilombolas and other tribes that make up the region’s rich cultural tapestry. These people have special characteristics and face some problems due to their environment, such as lack of access to high-speed Internet, computers or mobile devices, and basic services to stored and integrated into the digital age.
To overcome these problems, the Rede Amazônia +Conectada program was created, which aims to provide Internet connection to 500 homes in Juruti, Pará, and promote access to education and online learning in the regions of Brazil. The initiative is carried out by +Unidos Group with support from USAID (United States Agency for International Development) and in collaboration with EBAC (British School of Creative Arts and Technology), Alcoa, Trench Rossi Watanabe and is also supported by IJUS, J-Pal and Conecta Amazônia.
“Communities in these areas often have to travel long distances to access these services, which also makes access to schools and the use of modern technology difficult . Our goal is to help change this situation, not only to provide technology and access, but to provide tools to support people and help them develop “,
explains Juliana Vianna, Director of Participation and Personal Events at EBAC.
The selection process will take place between 2023 and 2024 and from October 30th the first phase will begin, which will connect 200 houses. Residents of different communities in the area of Tabatinga, Castanhal and Juruti Velho can register to participate. Registration can be done online or in person, as the service team will work to visit the selected communities. This approach seeks to ensure that people without Internet access can participate in the project, thereby promoting greater impact in these areas.
“The importance of connection is to bring knowledge together. It is far too connected. We value education. We want to expand the opportunities of these communities, offering new and advanced courses so that they have access to the best of education. Bringing EBAC, which is used for innovation and digital classrooms, into this partnership is essential to achieving our goals. We want free access to education on the Internet. It’s a good combination,”
concludes Daniel Grynberg, CEO of + Unidos Group.
Registration to participate in the project will take place between October 30th and November 15th, 2023 and the prerequisites and registration forms can be found at this link: https://www .maisunidos.org/inscricoes-amazonia-mais/.
