Education

PRECE is an educational movement in the Sertão in which young people  learn in cooperative units, develop their potential and actively take their future and that of their region into their own hands. Today PRECE works mainly in the public school system. Starting from its state model school EEEP Alan Pinho Tabosa, part of the Ashoka network of Changemaker Schools, PRECE reforms public schools from the inside out through the method of cooperative and solidary learning. The nehemia team supports this work locally through its colleague Julia Hildmann.
