Activities in the project aimed to strengthen the work shared by institutions and programs operating in the area for infancy, education, health, and social assistance. Another goal was to supplement the training of institutions' professionals through educational activities among youngsters, community, and professionals of Camargo Corrêa Group. Themes discussed included adolescence, sexuality, sexual violence, sexual exploitation, sexual and reproductive rights, health promotion, and a life project.
The action is part of project "Great Works for Infancy", which is part of Ideal Childhood program, from ICC, and is taken in cooperation with Construtora Camargo Corrêa. In Fortaleza city, the company is responsible for Vila do Mar, a public municipal project to urbanize neighborhoods in the city's coast.
Márcia Campos, the project's general coordinator, says the action helps create an integrated network to fight child sexual exploitation. "Professionals often didn't know for sure when they should report the cases, but now they know who can serve these youngsters and how they can follow up on services provided", she says.
