Testimonials from people who directly benefited from our projects

Slide ANA KARINA Compartilhando Saberes Ana Karina, artesã e mestra em corte e costura, conheceu por meio da Rede CriaNorte o Mariás – negócio social da NCCV – e foi convidada pela gestora a ministrar aulas para as mulheres atendidas pela ONG.
Já formou 1 turma de mais de 10 mulheres e está iniciando a segunda.
“Eu nunca imaginei que poderia ser professora, está sendo tão gratificante essa experiência, porque através dessas mulheres eu consegui ter mais empatia pelo próximo, mais paciência. Você vê tanto sofrimento que passei também a valorizar minha própria vida e família. Estou aprendendo muito.”

Slide KATIA Empreendedorismo Social Kátia é gestora do grupo Mariás – projeto social do Núcleo Cristão de Criança e Juventude – que atua no acolhimento de mulheres que sofrem violência doméstica.
Apaixonada também por artesanato, a Rede foi uma inspiração para que começasse a desenvolver peças com essas mulheres, para formação profissional e incentivo criativo.
“Assistir às aulas da Escola me ajudou muito a planejar melhor o Mariás. Agora me sinto mais segura para me dedicar 100% a esse projeto.”
Slide PRISCILA Autoestima e Depressão Priscila, uma das artesãs mais jovens da Rede, identificou desde muito nova um quadro de depressão. O artesanato, ainda considerado um passatempo, no passado sempre esteve ao seu lado e foi o que possibilitou a ela procurar ajuda médica: trocava as sessões de terapia por presentes artesanais que desenvolvia para a psicóloga, com forma de “pagamento”.
Hoje, depois de largar o emprego que não lhe fazia bem para se dedicar integralmente à Rede, ela revela:
“A Rede me salva todas as manhãs, na hora de levantar da cama. Estou realizando um sonho, me sinto reconhecida e valorizada. Vocês são meu refúgio e o artesanato minha terapia mais eficiente”.

Testimonials from volunteers

“Having participated Startup Varejo and living in the North part of the city, for me, it a real opportunity to contribute a bit with this new generation that will soon be in the labor market. The best part of the experience is to be surprised by so many innovative ideas and entrepreneurial young people who seek for the collective well-being. I will be present in all possible volunteering initiatives by ICN.”

“I have always followed the history of Instituto Center Norte with admiration for the work they to benefit the society. Cidade Center Norte has a volunteering policy, we are encouraged to participate in current projects and through one of these communications I have enrolled to volunteer, because I believe we can help make a change and we are also changed by these initiatives.

I have participated in two editions of Startup Varejo as a mentor. It is a technological entrepreneurship project in public schools in the North area of the city. Both of them have been inspiring experiences, to see how much these people value the chance to participate the project and see it as an important part of their professional future. I see results in this type of initiative, using knowledge as a tool to transform/help society.”
DANIELA FERNANDES DANIELA FERNANDES

“I have been a volunteer for the Startup Varejo Program, a joint initiative by Instituto Center Norte and Ideas do Futuro, a consulting firm.

I served as a mentor during the development of some youth projects supported by the Program and in the final presentations that defined the most structured projects.

Acting as a volunteer goes far beyond spending time on your day, on your routine, to help. I see it as an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people who seek their space through their ideas, their ideals, their learning. And the Program does exactly that, it causes this young man to explore his potential, raising the meaning of his ideas and making them develop with the best of himself.

It is a rich and impactful process for everyone involved, because it promotes social action, stimulates learning and opens paths for social development and entrepreneurship.

For me, being part of that is, somehow, to cooperate with the growth of each of those people.”
JOSÉ CARLOS ARANTES NETO JOSÉ CARLOS ARANTES NETO

“Volunteering gives us a chance to meet new people and to see new realities, it is an incredible knowledge exchange.

I believe we are in the company for our personal and professional development and the openness to being a volunteer helps us with that, with personal growth and to become better and more empathetic people.

I was glad to be a volunteer for Cidade Center Norte, which is always open and encourages us to get to know the group’s works and projects. I am thankful for the opportunity to collaborate in projects I believe in and I hope to do much more with you.”
GIULIANA ALVES TAVARES GIULIANA ALVES TAVARES

“For me, volunteering is an immense and powerful chain in which the volunteer gets a lot more benefits than those that are helped.

Also, to think about productivity, efficiency, and development in the corporate environment without connecting this aspect of human exchange is to avoid progress.

All initiatives promoted by the Institute I could take part in showed me value and purpose. It makes all the difference to devote your time to something you believe in. And it has since been a mutual exchange and very rich in experiences and inspirations. Thank you Instituto Center Norte.”
