The Program seeks, through a structured methodology for the incubation of social businesses, to structure, consolidate and leverage projects. Since 2015, AGIR has been certified as a social technology and includes different phases during its life cycle, such as prospecting, entrepreneurial training, incubation, acceleration and business graduation. The program provides for direct investment, the so-called seed capital, in productive infrastructure and equipment. The actions are aimed at both associations, cooperatives and informal productive groups and, through the program, the enterprises receive training, technical advice and mentoring in financial management, governance, formalization, production and marketing, seeking to become sustainable.

Inclusive Education

Since 2016, vale Foundation has invested in Inclusive Education, with the aim of contributing to improving the quality of Specialized Educational Service (AEE). At the same time, it promotes the exercise of citizenship. The program supports the public schools’ system in the formation of the technical team of the municipal departments of Education, of directors, pedagogical coordinators and teachers. This support extends to equipping the multifunctional resource rooms to serve students with disabilities, global development disorders or giftedness enrolled in the municipal public network.

Literary Routes and Networks

The program supports public education networks to structure the policy for promoting books and reading and to integrate reading actions into the curriculum. The program promotes access to books and reading through the expansion of the schools’ literary collection and the training of teachers in reading mediation, in addition to improving the rooms and reading corners of schools.
