Young Sprouts Program

Located in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul, the Young Sprouts (Broto de Gente) Association is sponsored by the Eldorado Unit. The association works to reduce the social vulnerability of children and adolescents through afterschool activities that promote cognitive, psychological and pedagogic development.

On school days, students participate in activities such as educational reading workshops, English classes, sports, dance lessons, theatre and choir. The activities raise awareness among the children and teenagers of the transformational role they play in society. They also begin to prepare for the job market. In 2016, the youth participating in the Young Sprouts Program can apply for the Believe Jr. Program, a move that aims to integrate the social actions sponsored by the Company and give them an opportunity to work at Odebrecht Agroindustrial.

During the 2015/2016 crop year, R$441,000 was invested in the project, which served 210 children, of whom 78 are the children of the Company’s Team Members. Requiring investment of R$3.44 million, Young Sprouts has already benefited, over a period of ten years, 2,260 people from 6 to 15 years of age, who include the children of Team Members and local residents in the cities of Deodápolis, Lagoa Bonita, Presidente Castelo, Vila União and Porto Vilma.
