1. Letter to the readers

“I became president of the United Way Brasil council in November 2014. I had already been involved with activities related to volunteering and social investment throughout my career at O-I, since this is very important to our company. However, assuming leadership of the coalition has been a great learning experience. In recent years, United Way Brasil has strengthened and grown, bringing quality education to thousands of children and young adults. As chairperson of United Way Brasil and chairperson of O-I in Brazil, I use my leadership to engage our collaborators in social transformation projects that we developed in partnership with United Way Brasil. I believe that creating an opportunity for employees to volunteer in social transformation activities and to be co-investors in the project are effective ways for the company to exercise social responsibility and to provide collaborators a way to exercise their citizenship and social participation (because for each Real donated by collaborators, O-I donates another Real). Improve the communities where we live and work is a process which definitely also benefits the company. We are creating better opportunities for development of children and young adults from poor neighborhoods within our country, which has the potential to produce a more competitive workforce and generate a stronger economy. As chairperson of the board I also have the opportunity to share the good work we have been doing so that other companies might also join United

Social investor Being a Social Investor in United Way Brasil is more than committing to a voluntary financial donation. It’s investing in programs and projects that directly affect the quality of education for children and young adults in Brazil. United Way Brasil believes in joining efforts and acts in conjunction with the associated company on the Campaign for Social Investors to present the programs and their results and engage people in our cause. For every R$1 donated by the collaborator, the company donates an additional R$1. The initiative enables the contributor to become a Social Investor with their company and transform the local community. For every Real donated, R$0.85 are invested in the community and the remainder is destined for UWB administrative costs. Every investment made by the collaborators is directed entirely toward their own communities. The amount needed for administrative costs comes from the matching of contributions by the companies. According to the guidelines of our corporate governance, we are committed to improve our efficiency even more and our goal is to limit administrative costs to under 10%. In 2014, UWB held Social Investor campaigns at three associate partner companies: Owens Illinois, P&G and PwC. UWB visited each company for a week and had the opportunity to show the results of programs and projects to collaborators and engage them in the social cause of the institution.

R$0,85 of each Real donated is invested in the community.

Common Fund Children and youth programs of the United Way Brasil are funded by a Common Fund, formed by the resources from different companies and individuals that invest in UWB, and by grants from foundations and companies outside of Brazil. Over the course of each year, UWB develops its projects in regions near the investing companies.

Projects to increase volunteering held in 2014 HP In the month of May, HP held their project Week of Service (Week of Volunteering). On occasion, 26 Volunteers promoted a lecture for 180 young adults about the labor market, smoking and sexually transmitted diseases. Teenagers are assisted by the NGO ‘CAMP SBC’-Training and Social integration Center of São Bernardo do Campo, a municipality of the State of São Paulo in Brazil.

Intel With the support of the UWB, 70 volunteers from Intel developed activities with 300 children of the Julita Foundation, located in the southern area of São Paulo, and even contributed to the improvement of the physical space. Some of the activities included planting fruit trees, storytelling, theatre of shadows, corporate games, painting, maintenance of spaces, etc. In order to help young adults have more opportunities in the corporate world, the Julita volunteers simulated a job interview with 10 young candidates.

This logic behind this fund is to focus the impact of actions and investments in the same direction; education of children and young adults. At the same time, this provides investors with local initiatives, which allows monitoring the use of resources, both by the company and their volunteers.

Increasing volunteering United Way Brasil believes in the power of the connections between people and encourages network volunteer work to transform the social scenario of Brazil. In addition to its Social Programs, UWB supports social responsibility projects by nonaffiliated companies. Morgan Stanley Between the months of June and July, volunteers of Morgan Stanley, through a partnership with UWB, benefitted 10 social institutions, impacting directly and indirectly an average of 800 children and 692 socially vulnerable youngsters from the city of São Paulo. The action celebrated Volunteer Month at Morgan Stanley. Among the activities was the installation of a computer lab in the Érgon Institute to help contribute to the vocational training of young learners.

“Viva Unido” (Live United) Day Every year, United Way Worldwide mobilizes units located in 42 countries to hold Live United Day. United Way Brasil celebrated Live United Day in November 2014, uniting people from different companies and organizations to a voluntary collective activity at the CEI Jardim Souza foundation, located in the southern area of São Paulo. The activities chosen were defined from the Escuta das Crianças (“Listen to the Children”) project that UWB conducted throughout the year, in which it was possible to identify the dreams of children for their schools in order to improve the educational process beginning in nursery school. In eight hours of activities, 20 volunteers transformed the CEI Garden Souza foundation. New toys, fresh coats of paint, more possibilities for new games. Companies and organizations that participated in the Live United Day 2014: General Motors, DuPont, Holcim, Nestlé Foundation, Queijo Bel Brazil and GIFE network.

Playing to Grow Playing to Grow offers continued training for education professionals in order to strengthen activities as sources for educational practice in early childhood education classrooms. The project started in 2013 with the theme ‘ Arts’ and continued in 2014 with ‘Art, Space and Games’’.

There are 2,059 professionals taking part in the initiative, including directors, coordinators and teachers, and 54 CEIs in the State of São Paulo, Brazil. Qualification was coordinated by the technical staff of “Avisa Lá”, a UWB partner institution, whose challenge was to improve the pedagogical practice of public child education networks.

Also in 2014, a new initiative was implemented in the theme Playing to Grow - the Listening to the Children project, developed to help schools improve their pedagogical projects through a diagnosis which includes needs, opinions and wishes of the children.

To train the directors, visits to other institutions were carried out in order to experience new environments to provide elements of training and expand their cultural vision. With the coordinators, discussion about the organization of space to promote a good atmosphere was stimulated. The teachers had access to various studies which facilitated the understanding of the language of playing as the ability for children to imagine and to relate to the world.

At the end of the teacher training project , the participants of the “Lar Afeto” institutions and ARCA - Christian Responsibility and Assistance Association, located in the region of Vinhedo, São Paulo, produced a guide of activities stating the knowledge acquired. The objective was to disseminate insight among teachers and to help them plan activities and recreational activities for children.

The project involved 47 educators of four day care centers in the city of São Paulo -CEI Jardim Souza, CEI Casa da Criança, CECI Herdeiros do Futuro and CEI São Norberto. The NGO“CriaCidade” was a UWB technical partner for the training of professionals and diagnostics.

Reading to Grow launched an online platform that will empower the number of children that will be benefitted

Reading to Grow A new partner contributed with United Way Brasil to the education of young children in 2014. Through BNDES resources, The Klabin company, Brazil’s largest producer of paper for packaging , began supporting the Reading to Grow Project. The project was developed with the goal of strengthening the contact of children with books and impacted the reality of 1,680 children and 252 education professionals in nine Brazilian cities .

United Way Brasil in partnership with the Avisa Lá Institute has developed a virtual platform (www. crescerlendo.org) for the training of educators in public schools about the Reading to Grow Project. The online methodology will be replicated in other UWB educational projects in 2015, which will increase the number of people trained and qualified in child education around the country. The training was divided into five modules. The first presented the platform to the participants. The second, “Read stories in child education”, treated the importance of this activity in early childhood and ways to encourage it. And the third, “Organization of the environment for reading,” detailed methods for creating attractive reading corners for children. Then came “Reading and Story Telling”, which featured tools used to encourage children to have more interest in literature. The course ended with the module “Look at the collection: selection criteria and proposals for circulation of books”. Each step included thematic discussions, and the whole course lasted 24 weeks.

The project has as partner, the Department of Education in each municipality: Betim (MG), Guapimirim (RJ), Feira de Santana (BA), Otacílio Costa (SC), Correia Pinto (SC), Lages (SC), Jundiaí (SP), Goiana (PE) and São Leopoldo (RS). For UWB, the project has meant the opportunity to take our methodology through distance education to various locations in the country, which increased the number of children served. Reading to Grow counted on three approaches: the continuing education of professionals in early childhood education and technical staff of the Secretaries of Education about inserting literature in the schools; voluntary performance of Klabin employees and parents of the children in the storytelling activities and installation of Reading Corners and the donation of a top quality collection (430 titles) at 10 pre-schools to serve as a reference for other schools in the municipalities. The project exceeded the expected target audience. With an initial estimate of 900 children, the project benefited 1,680 children in nine municipalities. In the schools, the books used to be stored, but now they a part of the children’s routine and low quality books are no longer being offered.

“The training showed a new way to practice reading in the classroom. Children’s literature gained a greater place in a kid’s life here at school. Telling stories is now a daily practice that is part of the educational process “ Sônia Maria Ferreira

Municipal Child Center in Betim, Minas Gerais.

Youth Training Project.

Skills for Life Program (youth)

United Way Brazil invests in young adults through the “Skills for Life Program”, which aims to encourage completion of high school, develop entrepreneurial skills and help seek their first job through opportunities provided by complementary educational school projects, held in NGOs or in partner companies of UWB. According to a study by the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) and the Ibero-American Youth Organization (IOK), only 10.6% of public expenditures in Brazil are targeted to children and young adults. This is yet another reason that United Way Brasil invests in education. There are two projects included in this line of action:

-Youth training

(mentoring, workshop, lectures, Professions panel)

-New Generation of Scientists

In 2014, 1,070 young adults from 38 institutions and 615 volunteers from 18 associated companies and partners participated in the youth training project. The initiative aims to generate interest in studies, increase knowledge and bring students closer to the world of work through contact with volunteer professionals and companies.

In addition to the 20 Mentorings, the United Way has promoted 6 Professions Panels, 6 lectures and workshops, 4 technical visits to companies and 1 Digital Media course. In 2014, the UWB partnership with Bank of America improved the quality of the teaching material for the Mentoring “Your Professional and Financial Future”. The investment also contributed to the creation of a game that provides way of teaching children financial education. The methodology will be applied in schools through the program Learning to Grow in 2015.

External evaluation confirms the importance of Mentoring for professional and academic life of the young External evaluation confirms the importance of Mentoring for professional and academic life of the young. To evaluate the impact of the mentoring in the academic and professional lives of young people, at the end of 2014 United Way Brasil performed an external evaluation in partnership with MOVE, a consultant in strategic evaluation for intelligent social investment. The study shows that Mentoring stands as a springboard for young people to obtain access to an expanded professional universe, increasing their interest in school and the world of work. 690 youth, 390 volunteers, 8 NGOs and 8 companies participated in this research and were also involved in the initiative in 2013. Employability, Educational Choices and Perspectives for the Future were the criteria chosen to evaluate the contributions of Mentoring in the lives of young adults one year after completing the project. Focusing upon these items, the research presented crucial data: 74.1% of respondents associated mentoring with learning how to grow professionally through studies and career planning; 67% claim to have more concrete plans of how to continue their studies and 63% of young adults believe that the Mentoring was crucial to improving their relationship with academic life. The course content and contact with the volunteers, their life stories and experiences were also outstanding aspects according to those questioned. Concerning the main gains according to our volunteers, besides contact with young people, the most cited item involves the satisfaction of sharing knowledge, being useful, which was followed by important attributes such as filling the educator role and networking. This also promotes the experience

22

Next generation of scientists

of teaching and developing new skills. In this regard, 85% of the volunteers would recommend this experience to others. The partner companies that developed the Mentoring along with UWB recognize that this enhanced cooperation skills, reinforced the idea of putting yourself in the other’s shoes as well as a change in the conception of social responsibility. Another obvious positive factor was the concern companies show in relation to following up on the young people after participation in the project. Some already begin the process of establishing a hiring policy for young people, especially as apprentices. “Contact with the volunteers was extremely enriching in terms of knowledge, exchange of experiences and learning. To learn from people who teach is much more productive. Being inside a large company was inspiring and strengthened my desire to go in search of my professional goals. Today, I know where I want to be in a few years and it motivates me”. Maria Eduarda

Participant of entrepreneurship mentoring in partnership with Votorantim

“I love being a volunteer in financial education training. Talking to young people about how they can achieve higher education is a wonderful opportunity. I feel that they are excited and full of dreams”.

The UWB Competence for Life Program began a new project in 2014: Next Generation of Scientists. This initiative aims to stimulate the interest of high school students to work in science, technology and innovation. The project, coordinated in partnership with the State of São Paulo Board of Education, involves the training of high school teachers to be a mentor of scientific initiation and to support of young adults with their project presentations at science fairs in Brazil and abroad. The idea is to arouse student’s interest in school and careers that lack professionals in the market.

has provided financial support to 40 young people in the state to participate in the fair and enlisted the help of many professionals from associate companies and partners to act as volunteers on a panel of judges. The projects presented impressed guests due to the student’s dedication, creativity, effort and commitment.

During the second semester of 2014, the II Complete Education Program Science Fair was held by the State Board of Education in order to challenge public school students to develop projects with innovative solutions addressing the issue of sustainability. UWB

The winning group of three students from EE Prof. Carlos de Arnaldo Silva school in the city of Lajes presented the project “A sustainable school”. They were awarded by United Way Brazil with a scholarship to study English and a trip to the United States to present their project at the Genius Olympiad in upstate New York. The resources for these awards came from the Common Fund, made up of voluntary donations by companies and their employees.

There were several themes among the projects, including insects in the food we eat, reduction of organic waste by using homemade compost, as an alternative energy using recyclables and the human body as energy sources.

In 2015, the Next Generation of Scientists project will gain new initiatives. The goal is to support the State Board in the expansion of the project to more schools, strengthen the bond between professionals at UWB associate companies and young adults in order to assist them in developing projects as well as prepare them to compete in fairs of various sciences, especially those internationally renowned.
