Social Responsibility

For Estáter, companies must act in a socially responsible way, contributing directly to the economic and social development of the country. Below is a list of the programs.

To invest today in tomorrow’s Brazil is one of the foundations that guide Estáter’s social activity which, with a responsible position, directs resources to social responsibility projects involved in the promotion of education, preservation of cultural history and the development of less-favored communities.

With this objective, we constituted the Instituto Estáter in 2010. A non-profit association and qualified as OSCIP (Organização da Sociedade Civil de Interesse Público), it is responsible for the development and monitoring of programs and projects which we support, geared toward areas of assistance, culture, education, the environment, and athletics.
Moreover, the Instituto is responsible for the management of resources received through voluntary donations and a percentage of our net profit.

Today we support five organizations that serve low income communities in São Paulo and the Northeast, three of which are focused in education, one in free legal support, and another dedicated to the social support of homeless children.
For Estáter, the companies must act in a socially responsible way contributing directly to the economic and social development of the country. Below is the list of social programs.

Amigos do Bem

Established in 2002, Amigos do Bem is a non-governmental and non-profit institution with the primary objective of contributing to the eradication of hunger and misery in the Sertão Nordestino through educational activities and self-sustainable projects that favor the social development of the needy population.

They develop specific projects based on studies, research and experience acquired over the years in places with the highest needs and in accordance to their deficits and potential, in search for self-sustainability.

In a few years, 4 Cidades do Bem were built where more than 3,000 people live; 4 Education Centers attended by more than 1,000 children, and 3 Transformation Centers, in their final phase of construction, with the purpose of teaching citizenship concepts to those who never attended school.

Fazendo a Nossa História

The Instituto Fazendo História contributes to the development of children and teenagers who are in foster care, working together with the protective network, with the purpose of strengthening them in order to transform their own story. The importance of the personal and family history of each member is the central axis for all programs of the organization. Since 2005, the Instituto Fazendo História works in conjunction with shelters through its own programs and projects in several cities of São Paulo, Paraná, Rio de Janeiro, Maranhão, Ceará and Paraíba states.

The Programa Fazendo Nossa História offers welcoming spaces such that children and teenagers who are in foster care recall and register the stories of their lives. Through reading, a child or teenager and a caring adult meet weekly to share stories and register them in an album with photos, reports, and testimonials. The album belongs to the child or teenager and accompanies them for the rest of their lives.

The Grupo Nós, currently financed through a partnership with Estáter, has as its objective to accompany and support for three years 15 teenagers who, on account of age, will be homeless. The goal of Grupo Nós is to strengthen this group of young people and contribute to the process of identity, feeling of belonging and creation of a support network.

Parceiros da Educação

Created in 2006, the Parceiros da Educação is a non-profit association that promotes and monitors partnerships between companies / businesspeople and the public school network.Parceiros da Educação takes to public education the management experience of businesspeople to complement the continuous development of Brazilian public education towards efficiency and result-orientation, forming citizens who are better qualified for the challenges of our current and future times.

The partnership evaluates public investments in schools, making them more capable and productive, with a central goal: improve the students’ performance in school. In this way, we established an association through Instituto Estáter with E.E.P.G Frederico Marcicano, located in the city of Ibiúna.

The focus of the investments of this association – with minimal duration of five years – is in pedagogic support, in particular, activities towards the continual formation of teachers, and recuperation and support of students.

Pró Bono

It is a non-profit organization established in 2001 with the mission to promote and spread the culture of pro bono legal work among law professionals.

Through the Projeto Pro Bono, the Instituto offers free legal advice, specialized and of high quality for the tertiary sector, contributing to the strengthening and professionalization of the civic society, as well as for the construction and consolidation of justice, solidarity and active participation of each individual.

It believes in raising awareness among the legal class of the importance of voluntary legal work and to strengthen the pro bono culture as part of the job to implement full access to justice.

Pró Saber

The Centro de Estudos Psicopedagógicos Pró-Saber was established in 1987 in Rio de Janeiro.In 2003 it opened its São Paulo branch with the inauguration of Espaço Nossa Casa, where a child education is offered for free, together with music workshops, physical education, arts, as well as nutrition, school materials and uniforms.

Currently, Pró-Saber serves 150 children, proposing to them a deep dive into the world of literature and writing so that they experience, live, and take pleasure in belonging to the world that reads and writes.
The main objective is to foster literacy to the largest number possible of children even before they join public schools, always respecting their stories, their wishes and difficulties.
Pró-Saber dreams of being a territory of peace and solidarity.
