Escola Eleva’s Scholarship Association Janelas Abertas
Janelas Abertas (“Open Windows”), Escola Eleva’s scholarship association, is an independent nonprofit association whose goal is to offer scholarships to low-income young people. We believe in education as the main instrument of change in a society marked by inequality.
Together, Janelas Abertas and Escola Eleva support the Escola Eleva Scholarship Program, generating a positive impact on the lives of extraordinary students who couldn’t be with us if it weren’t for the financial support.
Who do you want to be when you grow up?
At this moment, young people from all over the country are thinking about the answer to this question. They dream about growing up to achieve great purposes: finding new solutions to old problems, and creating paths to overcome challenges we can’t even imagine yet. A lot of young people want to change the world.
Unfortunately, some young people also need to ask themselves a different question:
“Who can I be when I grow up?”
The reality of inequality in Brazil imposes limits to the aspirations of lots of young people. Despite their wishes and abilities, they can’t find the opportunities they need to develop themselves in orderto reach their full potential. The social barrier of extreme economic hardship separates young people from their goals.
We want to eliminate this barrier. We want to build bridges between young people and opportunities.
We are Janelas Abertas, Escola Eleva’s Scholarship Association. A nonprofit association whose goal is offering scholarships to low-income young people with big potential. We believe in education as the main instrument of positive change in society, and in empowering people with different life stories so they can have opportunities to reach their dreams.
Our goal is to start a paradigm shift in the school scholarship system in our country. We want to be an example to other institutions of excellence, to reach the 20% of scholarship students in Escola Eleva by the year 2022.
You’ve grown up. You’ve become someone with a chance to change the world through education.
We have the same dream as you. Join Janelas Abertas Association.
