New Social Project – Ascendendo Mentes

We're proud to announce the newest addition to the JJ Tribe Social Project's roster, Instituto Ascendendo Mentes. In 2019, During my visit to Projeto Gaditas in Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, I met an incredible Social Worker who supports Gaditas, Nina Cardoso. We kept in contact, and in 2021 she started her own Social Project, Instituto Ascendendo Mentes.


Institute Ascending Minds believes that it is possible to change the world with affection, treating each being as unique, and offering support and education during their journey. They act by guiding vulnerable young people to perceive belonging and understand their roles in the world. As a result, they become protagonists of a whole and sustainable life. They developed an innovative methodology project focused on emotional intelligence, professional and socioeconomic education, entrepreneurship, and mentoring for young people aged 10 to 22 in social vulnerability.
