Learning to Help is a Health Education project that aims to provide children and young people with basic knowledge to act in an emergency situation.

Our mission? Working every day with innovation, playing a key role in transmitting knowledge and attitudes to younger communities, helping them to make decisions that are appropriate to their health, as well as the health of those around them.
The session consists of the presentation of our character “Amarelinha” who represents the Star of Life, explaining to children the entire Integrated Medical Emergency System.
Through children's stories, games and pedagogical dynamics, we teach children the Basic Life Support (BLS) algorithm. We do not fail to train intensely all techniques, from basic life support maneuvers, lateral safety position or unblocking maneuvers!
We do not want to turn children into doctors or nurses, but to awaken in each one the responsibility to help and learn more about first aid. Children and young people leave the room to sing the song… and the algorithm is learned.
We always end the session with the delivery of certificates of presence and tattoos with the photograph of our “Amarelinha”, so that when they get home, they can explain to their parents each phase of the Star of Life.

With this campaign we intend to raise funds to reach more children free of charge. We believe that this is an important topic that should be part of the educational context. And we also believe in achieving a more assertive population that is capable of responding adequately in a situation of accident.
A children's project for children!

About the author

The Aprender para Ajudar project belongs to the educational and social entity: Sorriso Up.
Sorriso Up was founded by the Superior Technician of Social Education Diana Marques. The news that traveled the world about the positive intervention that children had in emergency situations aroused in Educadora Diana Marques the interest in bringing more knowledge about Basic Life Support to children.

In addition to being an Educator, she is also a Pre-Hospital Emergency Technician, hence her vast knowledge in the health field. Without ever stagnating, he is currently taking a Master's Degree in Health Education at the Polytechnic Institute of Coimbra.

The Aprender para Ajudar team consists of Doctors, Nurses, Ambulance Relief Crews and Education Technicians.

Budget and due dates

The funds raised will bear the costs inherent to the Basic Life Support activity of the Learn to Help project, such as: BLS mannequin rental, impressions, acquisition of a video projector and speakers, monitors and travel, among others.

For each BLS action (1 hour), 75 euros are paid for 2 monitors (one in the health area and the other in the education area), 15.00 € / hour is paid for the BLS mannequin rental, 15.00 € in prints of certificates and tattoos by Amarelinha and € 20.00 are used for travels, among others.

The main objective is to be able to reach schools completely free of charge. With the € 1000 we asked for, we were able to reach approximately 500 children, through about 25 actions.

This project will be implemented throughout the year 2020.
