"ALICE no País das Árvores" is a new outdoor learning community that already supports 12 children daily. With the construction of a shelter, we can reach hundreds of families.

"ALICE no País das Árvores" is an Outdoor Learning Community that was born from a dream. The dream of providing children with meaningful experiences and relationships on a daily basis and in contact with nature.

During the first year the activities took place in a provided space. After a year of pilot project, time has proved the feasibility of the project and it is time to create a definitive space.

The community needs its own space. In order for us to continue to integrate all families, regardless of their socio-economic status, your help is essential!

This fundraising will finance the construction of a shelter that will support the daily life of the children who attend the community. It is also an investment that will make it possible to diversify the offer of activities, such as playgroups and family activities in nature, reaching hundreds of children and their families.

Without your help, it will be very difficult to reach more children and welcome all the families looking for a free education close to nature!

About the author

"ALICE no País das Árvores" is a project under the umbrella of the non-profit association "CAMINHOS SEGUIDOS - ASSOCIAÇÃO PARA A PROMOÇÃO DO DESENVOLVIMENTO HUMANO" (NIPC - 513416579).

In this project:

  • We believe in community learning in which adults and children can be partners in the construction of knowledge. We want to support families who want to be deeply involved in their children's learning process.
  • We value the experience of meaningful relationships and learning through experimentation, exploration of the senses and respecting the rhythm of each child.
  • We believe in the importance of free play for the healthy development of the child and nature as the best way to achieve it.
