The human being at the center of everything. Founded in 2006, the Eurofarma Institute has already performed actions in the areas of complementary education, environmental education and training of young people, adults and the elderly.
With over 77,000 direct services performed, the Institute is sure of one thing: education transforms lives. For over a decade, we have all taught and we have all learned. Together we join forces, empowering children, adolescents, adults and the elderly, providing opportunities for the future and making dreams come true.
Headquartered in the Interlagos district in the south of São Paulo, the Eurofarma Institute was created in 2006 to improve management of the company’s social investments, which decided to create and conduct its own educational programs in three areas: Complementary Education, Training for Young People, Adults and the Elderly, and Environmental Education.
To that end, we will continue to put people at the center of opportunities to and always, which is also why we continue to invest in a transformative education. In 2018, the Eurofarma Institute received more than BRL 12.7 million and assisted over 1,900 children, young people and adults in regular courses. On average, there were more than 10,000 annual services in the last five years, with about 14,000 direct calls in the previous year. In 2018 alone, 123 schools were involved in the Institute’s programs, with 248 trained teachers. Program highlights include “De Olho no Enem” [Looking to the National High School Exam”], a preparatory course with methodology developed by the Institute itself, focusing on the subjects of Portuguese and math for high school students from public schools. In recent years, the percentage of students who were accepted to a university was around 65%, including some of the country’s main institutions, such as Universidade de São Paulo (USP).
In 2018, the Institute included two vocational courses for adults in its course lineup, aimed at generating family income and promoting social inclusion. The new courses – Senior Caregiver and Electrician Assistant – are offered to adults between 18 and 45 years of age, in addition to an Entrepreneurship course taught to participants by Sebrae. For people over the age of 60, a Recycling Workshop was developed to promote social relations through workshops that turn waste PET bottles into useful items, such as bags and decorative items.
