Social Inclusion

Members of the community Joomla! Brasil promoted one activity for the kids and teens at social risk of FISLINHO (is the kids place at the event.) with the BB Team (Banco do Brasil).

We told them a story about a boy who has dedicated care and attention to his little pig and ended up rich. The book aims to awake in readers, children from 4 to 10 years old, the importance of saving money and planning the future (Financial Education).


After that members of the Joomla! Brasil community built a website with them. Despite they had just 15 minutes for that, the attendees created together an article about their project.      

It is very easy to build a website. - said one of the kids

You can know more about the Boca de Rua Project - a newspaper created, sold and managed by homeless people of Porto Alegre - in their website.

Community Meetings

We had two official meetings in FISL17 to talk about some Joomla! Brasil projects - always opened to new volunteers. :)
