Environmental Awarenesss and Health

Educating our new generations is the best way to preserve the environment.

The destiny of humanity is intrinsically linked to the fate of our planet; recognizing this fact will enable us to change our habits. However, it will take time to convince everyone of the necessity of such a change. Fortunately, children are more receptive than adults because their vision naturally focuses on the future.

Our logo combines the child, the tree, and the bird, symbolizing that our activities encompass all components of life.

Educational programs for young people, organized by Nordesta in the form of events, contests, radio shows, exhibitions, or conferences in schools, have already brought tangible results over the past years: by inspiring parents, the youth have encouraged them to create small nurseries, plant vegetables, and avoid pesticides. Through immersion in this fantastic world of the environment, young people also gain new perspectives on their future and the professions available to them in this field.


Theatre offers important educational perspectives for children. It is a factor in socialization by fostering the learning of dialogue and communication. The child can unleash their creativity and gain self-confidence.

The emerging children's troupe from the village
A group of children from the village of Quebrangulo stages a play inspired by the comic "Lili the Ant and the Forest of Pedra Talhada."

The international troupe "MaMaFeLé"   A magnificent performance by the MaMaFeLe theater troupe took place all around the Pedra Talhada Forest. Two shows on the themes of water and trees were presented in each of the villages benefiting from the water of this forest. Thousands of residents witnessed an artistic approach to these themes for the first time. We hope these performances have contributed to a new awareness of this biodiversity treasure where 169 drinking water sources originate.

The troupe: Markus Schmid, Hugo Moura, Christian Schmid, David Wagnières, Marie Gomez


Construction and arrangement of a library to familiarize children with reading.

The building is illuminated by solar energy. In this space, students can research, exchange ideas, and progress their understanding of the world.

In Brazil, opening a book is an unattainable dream for many children in isolated villages. Indeed, books are only sold in big cities. Photocopies are the only educational materials offered to children by teachers. Access to reading and documentation services feeds children's natural curiosity, eagerness for knowledge, and openness to the world. The possibility of approaching subjects beyond the borders of their village helps them better prepare for their future.

The library promotes education in a context where the academic level is low, and few parents can help their children with their homework.

Health Posts

Health is the foundation of a dignified and decent life. Direct access to a minimum level of medical care for everyone is the goal of our project.

In remote rural areas far from major cities, we have often faced a cruel lack of access to such care.

Whether in the Amazon rainforest or the arid landscapes of northeastern Brazil, there are large human communities whose nearest access to medical care is more than 10 km away. Often, journeys must be made on dirt roads that are difficult to access during rainy periods.

We have already had the opportunity to build and equip several of these centers, but it is important to us to be able to expand this project to many other regions.

In doing so, we will contribute to alleviating the suffering caused by accidents and illnesses. Dental care is also part of this perspective.
