RLabs is proud to launch our latest partnership in Brazil with Entrelaces with our champion Monica Garcia. We are looking forward to growing with our team in Brazil and below you can find out more about our partner organisation in Rio de Janeiro.

In 1999, Entrelaces (Brazilian Association for Research and Projects in Education) was founded by a group of professionals from different backgrounds, including Education, Psychology, Philosophy, Law, Economics and Finance, with the common goal of promoting social transformation based on the principles of dialogue, knowledge sharing and collective contribution.

Since then, we have developed projects in the areas of Education, Health, Environment, Culture and Sports, and we are now working together with the communities of Cantagalo, Pavão & Pavãozinho, with a population of approximately 12,000 people, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, focusing on the empowerment of the local workforce and the direct support to new business ideas.

In April 2011, we opened The Project Factory in partnership with community leaders, giving personal assistance and financial guidance to local entrepreneurs. The first project launched was the production of ecological soap made out of recycled cooking oil. Our next step is to help the local bars and restaurant’s owners to get more visibility inside and outside the community bringing a new stream of customers including residents from neighboring areas and tourists.

It is also in The Project Factory pipeline the re-activation of the community radio station and the re-launch of the local newspaper. We are very excited about the opportunity of being part of RLabs network and to magnify the depth and reach of this social revolution.

Viva RLabs Brazil!
