“We will bring several services to Vila Manápolis that many people have difficulty accessing due to various factors, such as commuting to the city. This is a way to benefit those who need it most, fulfilling one of Sesc’s objectives of promoting quality of life and social well-being”, explains the Regional Director of Sesc Amazonas, Adriana Nascimento.
About the project
The initiative, promoted by Sesc Amazonas, was created in 2022, considering the need to provide services that may be scarce in communities in the interior of the State. The first edition was held in May 2023, in the municipality of Careiro da Várzea. On that occasion, it served around 700 people with medical, aesthetic and recreational services.
In this second edition, the expectation is to serve even more people. On average, 2 thousand local residents will benefit from the activity. To achieve this, Sesc has partnerships with the National Commercial Learning Service (Senac), Rio Preto da Eva City Hall and the Air Force.
