Partnership for Education (PVE)
The Partnership for Education is an initiative of the Votorantim Institute in collaboration with Citrosuco and other Votorantim invested companies. The program aims at improving public education through the qualification of management practices with school management and school technicians, as well as the social mobilization of communities in search of quality education for all.
As a result of the medium-term intervention, the IDEB - Basic Education Development Index - tends to advance in the municipalities, reflecting the quality of the education.
10 São Paulo State counties have already been contemplated by the Program through Citrosuco.
For example, in Ibitinga-SP, a city contemplated by the PVE, there was a 35% advance in the indexes between 2017 and 2021.
The Pescar Project is a socio-professional program developed in partnership with the Projeto Pescar foundation, intended to change lives through access to education. The project provides training for young socio-economic vulnerable people, qualifying skills in synergy with job opportunities.
During the 20 years of this partnership, Citrosuco has already impacted more than 900 young people and their families. Pescar is also an opportunity for the Apprenticeship Program – one of the gateways to diversity in the company.
The Complementary School is an educational project that provides after-school care for rural municipal school children in Matão-SP. Citrosuco is the only company that promotes total attendance through extra-class activities related to art, sports, music, and environmental care, as well as monitoring by speech-language pathologists and psychologists. The actions take place at Cambuhy Farm in partnership with Cambuhy Agrícola and Citrosuco, currently following more than 40 children.
