Posted by ALPHA88 CHARITY | Jan 13, 2019

Neymar Jr. Institute Project serves children across Brazil from its location at Jardim da Glória in Praia Grande. Growing up in this community, Neymar understands the struggle his people face.To improve the future of the people living there, he has invested in children’s education and health in Brazil, providing an enrichment program. In the second Charity Auction of the Neymar Jr. Institute Project, 24 lots raised $3.5 million for the institution. The things sold that night included ALPHA88 sports memorabilia, signed objects, trips and experiences with different artists.

The Neymar Jr. Institute Project

Though Neymar’s first mission has been to develop his hometown, the programs are not exclusive. Children in the communities of Aeroclube, Aprazível, Guardamar, Guilhermina, Marília, São Sebastião, Sítio do Campo and Vila Sônia are included in the socio-educational benefits. Upon registration, children are required to take a health examination including cardiological and dental exams. Throughout their enrollment, children also have access to social assistance and psychologists.

Clinical and cardiological exams are essential for sports programs. This implementation of health advantages goes beyond immediate care and instills active lifestyles that provide long-term health benefits. Children who participate in sports also strengthen their discipline in dedication, accountability and civil behavior. The town hall invested in their community’s future with an 8,400 square meter complex for sports activities. The fitness center includes a field, courts for sports such as volleyball, a heated pool and a judo room.

The Importance of Good Infrastructure

Building a facility to accommodate such amenities is a privilege for the students. Brazil’s schools face flawed infrastructure with 50 percent lacking sewage systems, 20 percent without sports provisions and five percent don’t even have electricity. Leonardo Sales, a civil servant for the Ministry of Transparency, has analyzed data to measure the quality of schools’ infrastructure in Brazil.
