Education

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 managers and education technicians, as well as the social mobilization of communities.

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 municipalities have already implemented the program through Citrosuco, impacting more than 50 schools and more than 10,000 people, including students, families, school community and city administration.

For example, in Ibitinga-SP, a city contemplated by the PVE, there was a 35% advance in the indexes between 2007 and 2019.

Pescar

The Pescar Project is a socio-professional training program developed in partnership with the Projeto Pescar foundation, intended to change lives through access to education. The project provides training for low-income young people and, thus, broadens the opportunities for inclusion in the labor market. In Citrusco's industrial operations, the Pescar project works for the benefit of over 100 young people, with synergy occurring with the apprentice program, creating many opportunities.

Abrinq Foundation

The Child-Friendly Company Program was created in 1995 to engage and recognize the business sector for the prevention and combat of child labor exploitation, as well as to stimulate corporate social responsibility with a focus on children and adolescents.

Citrosuco is a company committed to the cause of protecting the rights of children and adolescents. In recognition of that partnership, we have the Child-Friendly Company seal, one of the first social responsibility seals in the country, which shows the commitment made with the Abrinq Foundation.

Complementary School

The Complementary School is an educational project that provides after-school care for rural municipal school children in Matão-SP. Being the only one in this area of the city, it has 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 benefiting more than 40 children.

Citizenship and Civil Society Organizations

VIA Solidária

Via Solidária (Solidarity Way) is an initiative of the Votorantim Institute, Citrosuco, and invested companies, which aims at encouraging a culture of donation to projects that strengthen the protection of the rights of children and adolescents.

Through resources mobilized by Citrosuco employees, employing up to 6% income tax deduction or direct donations, more than R$400,000 are directed to civil society organizations every year.

Currently, civil society organizations in Araraquara-SP, Matão-SP, Itapetininga-SP, and Catanduva-SP are all benefiting from it.

Citizenship Program

The Citizenship Program is a partnership between Citrosuco and the Votorantim Institute, aiming for the development of the country and democracy. It is a set of initiatives to expand citizen awareness and foster the active participation of individuals in society.

Through it we will raise awareness, generate knowledge and promote practices that contribute to a good democratic culture, providing tools so that citizens, aware of their rights and duties, can actively take part in public life in their localities.

Through Citrosuco, the locality of Matão-SP benefited from the program, developing the Young Parliament, a municipal law that fostered the engagement and training of local young leaders.

Support to Public Management

The Support to Public Management is an initiative of Citrosuco in partnership with Votorantim Institute, responsible for providing training, management tools and mentoring for public managers to effectively address the challenges of public health.
