To reach this result, the volunteers planned and executed several tasks, including the complete renovation of the room at Centro Paroquial, where the course is given. "There was a great mobilization for us to conclude this project. We were supported by several partners on the renovation and also on planning the syllabus, which, in the end, became more comprehensive. With this, the course is now recognized by the Department of Education", says Manoel Pinheiro Júnior, Coordinator of Electrical Maintenance at InterCement, and member of Spreading Knowledge GAIV.

The course, supported by CETEC – Center for Technical Qualification of Jacobina, will have 1,200 class hours, divided into three semesters, with night classes from Monday through Friday. All 16 teachers are volunteers from the GAIV, and 10 of them work at InterCement.

This first class has 45 students, and 25 of them have full scholarships, including materials. "This is an opportunity for needy youths to have access to knowledge and, then, to the labor market. All at the GAIV feel pleased and motivated to continue working for the social well-being", Manoel concludes.
