Graduation at Gastromotiva!
Recently three participants completed their studies with Gastromotiva! The graduations were attended by many friends and family and took place on June 14 and 19 in the Refettorio Gastromotiva, a school-restaurant in Rio de Janeiro that fights waste and offers daily dinners for homeless people.
Gastromotiva is an organization that through education, food and gastronomy aims to promote social inclusion, seeking to transform the lives of people in conditions of social vulnerability. Therefore, Gastromotiva offers several courses and professional training focused on social gastronomy and sustainable entrepreneurship!
Our graduates Rute and Jéssica, recruted from our partner NGO, Abrigo Rainha Sílvia, graduated as professional cooks with an emphasis on social gastronomy, a course that teaches about the rescue and full use of food and daily preparation of dinners for homeless people, while Rafaella, recruted from our partner NGO Instituto Bola Pra Frente, graduated in the entrepreneurship course, in which those who are interested in having their own business learn about citizenship, marketing and packaging, as well as hygiene and food safety. Congratulations, girls!
Many thanks to Gastromotiva, Refettorio Gastromotiva, Abrigo Rainha Sílvia & Instituto Bola Pra Frente, for the partnership in our mission to offer more opportunity through education and professional qualification so that young adults can dream and conquer a better future!
