Environmental and nutritional initiatives for Brazilian students
Echo Energia and the students at Escola Princesa Isabel in Sao Paulo have transformed an idle outdoor space, with no educational purpose, into a sustainable organic vegetable garden with recycling and compost facilities.
In addition to providing a source of vegetables and herbs for the school canteen, the garden also functions as a pedagogical tool for early childhood development.
Actis Acts’ funding has also provided financial and environmental training to 60 people from the local community.
