INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION FÉ E ALEGRIA AND YOUR CONVERGENCE WITH THE SDGS

Education is considered to be a predominant factor for social, economic and cultural development and is the main element for building a society. It is fair to affirm that education is constituted in family life, in human experience, because it goes through formal education and can be considered in the process of influencing people who “lead the transformation and training of the student to interact with the inserted environment” ( CALLEJA, 2008). Brazil and 193 other member states of the United Nations (UN) have committed themselves to adopting the so-called 2030 Agenda, which aims to work to meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that represent a global action plan to eliminate poverty extreme poverty and hunger, offer quality education throughout life for all. In addition, through the SDGs, efforts are made to protect the planet and promote peaceful and inclusive societies by 2030 (AGENDA 2030, 2018). The social reality in which the Fé e Alegria Foundation operates demonstrates that countless citizens continue to live in poverty and are denied a dignified life, in addition to growing inequalities and disparities in opportunities, wealth and power, and gender inequality is a major challenge. . Another issue to be tackled urgently, whether by governments, or by organized civil society institutions, is unemployment, particularly, especially what affects young people, which is still a major concern of the community of Bairro Aririú, in the city of Palhoça / SC, where a unit of the Fé e Alegria Foundation is installed and where the research was carried out. For the execution of the present study, a case study was carried out, being a qualitative and exploratory research, since the researchers use it in order to explore a topic, when its variables and theoretical bases are unknown. Data collection was carried out through semi-structured interviews with the Project's pedagogical coordinators. Data analysis was performed through content analysis, as established by Bardin (2009). The Fé e Alegria Foundation, from its last national meetings, chose as a priority the realization of actions that are in line with the Goals for Sustainable Development, prescribed by the Agenda 2030. At the Palhoça Federation unit, the following SDGs were chosen, objectives 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10 and 17, with the guiding axes to be faced and the actions that will be pursued by the year 2030. Resulting in a Table with the actions carried out by the project, as well as a Mind Map and a Canvas Model, all aiming at a better understanding of the proposed objectives. Based on the study carried out, the Faith and Joy Foundation sees a more humane outlook, the positive side of people, because they achieve some significant progress in overcoming many development challenges, and are in line with the SDGs. Many people emerged from extreme poverty in the region where the Foundation is located and, with their presence, managed to change their status, and today they have reversed the situation in which they arrived at the Foundation.
