Help youngsters work on a sustainable future

The organisation OELA (Oficina de Escola de Lutheira de Amazônia) supports young people in Brazilian slums, whose prospects would otherwise have been bleak, work on the future.




Aircares oct-dec 2010

OELA manages a training institute in one of the slums of Manaus. The youngsters learn how to make instruments there. They also receive training in graphic design and learn how to work a computer. Their personal development is enhanced by musical education, psychological guidance, theatre, workshops on communications and information on the environment.


OELA works on setting up a semi industrial product range for snare instruments and a trade in FSC certified timber.  They do so to become more sustainable in the long run.


OELA is supported by the Dutch organisation for development cooperation ICCO: working for a world without poverty and injustice.
