Valuing the creativity of children and teenagers, awakening a more sustainable awareness, shows that when we sow positive actions, we reap good fruits.
For 17 years, we have contributed to educational development in the areas where EDP operates, through initiatives aimed at increasing the quality of student life.
With an annual calendar of activities, we support schools with study materials and through the development of teachers’ competences, with a specific prioritization methodology for analyzing school needs. In that way, the reality of each school is respected in our educational development path.
In partnership with the Secretary of Education, EDP adds positive results in schools. Among them, the reduction of school dropout, student performance, skills and abilities, family integration, citizen awareness, encouraging reading, the role of children and teenagers and improving the Basic Education Development Index (IDEB).
