The “Education for the Rights: educating to transform” project, created by the IDDD in 2009, has focused on disseminating information on citizenship, fundamental rights, and social rights in communities with a high incidence of violations of those principles. The initiative has stimulated communitarian articulation, seeking to achieve collective results. In order to fulfil this goal, lawyers associated to the Institute have given expository classes for young students from the public education system, based on Paulo Freire’s education methodology, and participated in meetings with communities in order to capacitate multiplying agents of the subject. With more than 300 students trained at the Deputy Hugo Lacorte Vitale State School, in Campo Limpo, from 2011 to July 2013, the IDDD started a partnership with CEU Parque Anhanguera in October 2013. The location was chosen because of the high social vulnerability to which the population of its surroundings are exposed and also for its articulating role of community resources, which allows dialogue with various municipal education units, building a protection network to fundamental guarantees. In 2014, 72 students of 8th and 9th grade from three schools in the region participated in weekly meetings to discuss issues related to fundamental rights.
