Raízen, the fifth largest company in Brazil in terms of revenue, opens today (20) the new center of its Foundation in the city of Ipaussu, São Paulo, which should serve an average of 200 people per year, offering professional qualification and socio-educational programs. The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the center (Avenida Antônio Carlos de Abreu Sodré, 880).
The Ipaussu unit joins other six social responsibility centers of the company that have the purpose of offering free programs to fulfill the local needs for qualification, besides promoting civil responsibility projects. Raízen also has a mobile center that takes professional training to the communities and to its employees in locations where there are no centers.
According to Marina Quental, vice president for Organizational and Human Development at Raízen, the opening of the Foundation in the city is an opportunity for the professional and personal development of youth and adults. “Raízen Foundation’s center in Ipaussu comes to fulfill demands that exist both in the area and in the company. In this first moment, we are mapping the needs to define the specific schedule for professional qualification courses”, she states.
With the opening of Raízen Foundation’s center, the educational opportunities offered in Ipaussu will be increased. “The center is going to provide programs for up to 200 students, in the age groups from 11 to 16 and from 18 to 30, besides actions that are going to serve the whole community in Ipaussu”, says Marina.
Registrations for the socio-educational and professional qualification projects start in September. The programs offered, as well as the dates for registration and beginning will be announced subsequently through the media, posters and automobiles with loudspeakers.
