The EARJ Barra Community has been engaged in a beautiful project. Ms. Ligia’s  initiative to help SUIPA turned into a very successful campaign. SUIPA is the “International Union Society of Animal Protection” (Sociedade União Internacional de Proteção aos Animais) and has been going through difficult times after it’s founder past.  Campaigns have been made throughout the country to raise funds, materials, food, medicine and much more in order to keep it working and helping animals in need.

The SUIPA Campaign engaged students, parents, PTA, faculty & staff and reached out to the EARJ Community. In order to raise awareness and collect donations different projects were put into action.
A Bake Sale organized by 3rd grade (teachers and students) collected over than R$3.000,00.
Teachers and staff collected over than R$2.000,00 in donations.
Students developed the logo for the campaign, created posters, wrote texts in Portuguese and English, produced Power Points, and participated in the creation of T-shirts, that were produced with the help of the Barra PTA.
With the sale of shirts during the Barra Family Fun Day, R$1.260,00 were raised in sales and R$310,00 more in donations.
