The TRANSFORM IN ACTION Project is a socio-cultural project that aims to transform the reality of self-indulgence/victimhood into protagonism, using as a transformation tool the critical reading of books and of the world.
Based on the theory of many educational thinkers such as Freire, Gardner, Célestin Freinet and Lev Vygotsky, the project is a citizenship workshop capable of giving the individual self-esteem and knowledge, voice and time, to act consciously in the environment in which he lives.
It was founded in Felixlandia, a small town in the heart of Brazil. It originated when its founder, Ms. Fernanda Mendes, a local, idealized a community full of empowered, knowledgeable, youth, capable of critical thinking and ready to tackle the world. In her mind the best way to achieve that was through education and her tools proposed are books, arts and culture.
