St. Paul’s School is a proud supporter of the important work that the Fundação Britânica de Beneficiência does. As part of our comprehensive enrichment programme, which is a key element of the holistic education we offer at St. Paul’s, many of our pupils enjoy volunteering for the Fundação’s extended programme (Programa Multiplicar), which exists to assist the elderly in São Paulo who face situations of extreme vulnerability.
A group of our Senior School pupils recently visited Casa Madre Teodora dos Idosos, where they spent an enjoyable afternoon playing bingo, singing songs and getting to know the residents. The project offers a fantastic opportunity for exchange, where our pupils learn from the elderly and immerse themselves in another reality quite different from their own. Indeed, they certainly benefit from and enjoy these enriching visits as much as the residents do. You can read a full report on the visit on the FBB’s website at https://fundacaobritanica.org.br/voluntariado-programa-multiplicar/.
