You can still donate to Dara Institute!

Dara Institute (former Saúde Criança Renascer) is a civil society organisation that works to promote health and human development by implementing and fostering an integrated approach to combating poverty.

Pioneer in cross-sector work with social determinants of health in the world, the organisation was founded in 1991 by Doctor Vera Cordeiro, alongside a group of professionals from Hospital da Lagoa, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Because poverty is multidimensional, Dara believes that the social transformation of vulnerable families is only possible when different areas of human development are addressed simultaneously and in an integrated manner. For this reason, Dara developed the social methodology Plano de Ação Familiar (PAF – Family Action Plan), designed based on the needs of each family.

To implement their mission, the institute assists vulnerable families directly, fosters the knowledge on human development, works to influence public policies and the mobilisation of the civil society. Throughout history, the impact of Dara has been possible thanks to the work of more than 1600 volunteers, over 100 employees and a network of partnerships.
