The teachers at Cuiaba Mirim School were often on strike and the school was closed, leaving local children no option for an education.

Due to  political problems, and the inconsistency of the school classes, the community members together with funding from Grand Circle Foundation built a Cultural and School Community Center.

The space includes a library and reading area, and provides a place for the community to teach and learn crafts and computers. All teachers and helpers are be volunteers.

This center provides local children an education and another opportunity in life.
