Manifesto Pró Saber SP

We live in an unequal country, but we are driven by the conviction that reading and playing can make children happier in every social context.

We believe stories that are read daily enable children to shape their world making everyday life lighter and happier.

We are confident that a sensitive and caring practice of mediating stories from all over the world fills every childhood with words, poetry, journeys, gathering, amazement, joy and many opportunities!

The world becomes a more humane place as all children, regardless of race, color, ethnicity, culture, faith or origin, are welcomed and appreciated in their diversity and singularity, with the opportunity to play freely.

In our educational practice, we create possibilities for vulnerable children to become the builders of cities or sandcastles, cooks of delicious meals, playing generously with each other within safe places.

We believe that, through reading and playing, all children have the opportunity to develop listening, playing together, understanding the world and, above all, share the joy of good living.
