Who we are

The Institute

The Criança é Vida (Child is Life) Institute is a non-profit organization that develops projects to support what doctors and psychologists see as the minimum necessary to prevent diseases and ensure the healthy development of babies and children. The main focus of the projects is the physical, emotional and social health of children and adolescents.

The Criança é Vida (Child is Life) was born as a social project run by a private company, in 1996, working initially with 20 volunteers in 9 institutions. Today, it works with over 600 institutions and capacitates more than 1,500 Certified Instructors to support its projects, benefiting over 46,000 people, both children and adults.
