About us



More resilient civil societies, conscious of their impact on future generations and that contribute to the social development of their own country, starting with the surrounding community.

Universal responsibility towards future generations.
Respect and empathy.
Generosity and action sustainability.

Aware of our responsibility in contributing to the validation of social intervention programs, we've planned a course of action that we follow meticulously in each of the projects we’re involved in.


We identified a field we’re passionate about and collected all the relevant information - who operates in this field, what could be improved, and in which way can we add value to it.


We study our purpose and create bonds with the community. We research the best course of action.


We build the right team to approach each cause, we ask for support, we develop actions, we take note and evaluate the effect of each step.


We share everything we do with the transparency that can inspire others to act as well.

What is it, and how does it work?

This is the first project of the 1% Association. The program, committed to the field of education, is intended to enable children to be agents of humanity. The children, during the school year, will have access to tools and experiences that will lead them to create volunteer groups to solve their community’s needs. The program is structured in weekly sessions with a total of 24 to 30 hours by the end of the school year, and work as a complement of activities to the school ecosystem.

A quem se destina

To whom is it?

Children from 5 to 10. Once we will grow, we will adapt our materials to other age ranges (from 3 to 4 and from 11 to 17). We believe that, by introducing this program into the school curriculum, we will generate an indirect impact in the whole school's ecosystem.

Como apoiar

How to support?

Until July 2018, there will only be one way of supporting the program Help as you can - economic support. 1% Association is open to monetary support of any amount, which will be used in the research, management and preparation of materials to implementing the first program Help as you can.
