ESCOLA FRANCISQUINHO is in need for renovations and adaptations of its current facilities to suit all children appropriately. The building houses four classrooms, a room for music and computer education, a female bathroom and a men's room (which need to be fitted with sinks and toilets), a kitchen (where meals are prepared on a wood stove), a small room for administration and storage of materials. Meals are served in the outdoor area on an open porch, and the construction of a cafeteria is urgently needed.

Escola Francisquinho has special decorated rooms to receive children victims of violence.



In addition to the cafeteria, the school needs a library / reading room and a playground for children from 1.5 years old to 3 years old and from 4 to 10 years old.
