29 DE MARÇO SCHOOL
“ASID was a great achievement for 29 Março School. It’s with their help that we are able to get organized, especially in the financial department, aiming for growth and independence so that we could provide our students with quality work. ASID’s presence brought us more confidence and transparency so that we could develop our work in an effective manner. We can only thank them for their degree of dedication to Schools for Special Education.”
Josiane Bomfim, Principal.
AAMPARA – AUTISM CARE AND SUPPORT ASSOCIATION
“In AAMPARA’s past, we knocked on numerous doors, while searching for support to develop our long sought-after project, but we always had them slammed shut on our face, until we found ASID! And it’s great to find people that support us and welcome us with such care, and whom we can trust, knowing that we are no longer alone. ASID has helped us to structure our administrative and management sectors. Today we can continue to dream about fulfilling our objectives. It’s gratifying to work in partnership with people who value the quality in what they do, this is the great advantage in working with them! Doing good with dedication and love. I’d like to take the time to thank them for the excellent work that is being done.”
Rosimere Benites, President of AAMPARA.
AFECE – FRANCISCAN ASSOCIATION OF EDUCATION FOR THE SPECIAL CITIZEN
“ASID has played a fundamental role in the development of our entity, as it has contributed directly to making our services more professional, bringing not only their diagnosis of our entity, but especially by unlocking our potential and by helping us to polish our areas that need improvement. Another aspect is the recognition of this important sphere in education, which often times is forgotten, and the motivation brought on through the appreciation of each entity’s knowledge. This has been extremely important in keeping us motivated to carry on.”
Maíra de Oliveira, Director.
AGRÍCOLA SPECIAL SCHOOL
“ASID’s work alongside the school was guided by motivation and topped with success. The staff was able to raise awareness among parents and engage their presence in actions developed by the School by keeping them more involved and closer to the School Board. At the same time, they were able to make them all commit themselves to the objectives and goals of the school and to the school community. The joint task force, Mão na Massa (Hands On), especially involved the volunteers of the Gerday Company and was fully successful in its results.”
Maria Ivanilda Grillo – Pedagogical Director.
“We count on ASID to guide and aid us in relation to the difficulties we face daily in our school and with our sponsor. Which is why I’d like to thank ASID for their efforts and availability, since they always promptly help our institution, adding to our knowledge and values so that we can better meet the needs of our students, their family and the entire professional staff. With ASID’s support, we realized how much room we have to grow each day and make our services continually better.”
Juliana Mendes, Pedagogical Director.
ASSOCIATION OF PARENTS AND FRIENDS OF PEOPLE WITH AN INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY (APAE CURITIBA)
“ASID’s contribution was important, in terms of helping us improve our relationship with the families and in bringing us closer together with them, families that had long been absent from the association and who were then able to learn about the conditions and problems that the school was facing. We believe that with the participation, commitment and understanding of everyone, we can build a more democratic and humane school.”
Mauro Mocochinski – Principal at Agrícola Henriette Morineau School.
ASSOCIATION OF PARENTS AND FRIENDS OF PEOPLE WITH AN INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY (APAE PINHAIS)
“I can say that ASID is an organized company that transmits confidence, that shows us possible paths to take. ASID is always trying to give the special education NGOs a jumpstart, who in turn are in need of support and guidance. Our identities sometimes become obscured. We aren’t governmental, but we greatly depend on the government and this leads us to uncertainties and inconsistencies, taking away from our social focus and what defines our movement. ASID has lead us to reflect upon these movements of greater autonomy and independence which were so necessary.”
Maria Lima, Director.
OSTOMY ASSOCIATION OF PARANA – APO
“To APO, ASID was and still is a motivator of the objectives that need to be planned out. We have many goals that are still in the planning phase, like for example making APO a reference in care for ostomized individuals in the State of Paraná. With the help of ASID, this and other objectives will become less difficult to reach.”
Nailon Silveira, Advisor.
“Ever since ASID knocked on our door, many things have changed. Since the beginning we have participated in the Empowerment and the Good Practices Luncheon and we are trying to put everything we have learned into practice. We have greatly evolved. But we still have plenty of improvement to make. No amount of money can repay ASID for everything they have helped us with. I hope that one day we can also help them.”
Cecília Lopes da Silva, Speech Language Pathologist.
“It was a great pleasure to have ASID’s staff here with the Mão na Massa (Hands On) project, which benefited Fênix Special Education Elementary School with painted walls in the classrooms, leaving an adequate, clean and pleasant environment for students to be able to carry out their activities. We are thankful for the benefits of this project and we would like to be able to continue counting on them.”
Maria Augusta de Oliveira, Principal.
PARANA INSTITUTE FOR THE BLIND – IPC
“Our first impression was very positive. We were dealing with serious, relevant social work, lead by a group of young adults who are very committed to the cause of people with disabilities. Even within a short time period, the Project focused on Leadership Training and Human Resources already showed us some initial results and they were quite satisfactory.
From our side, we are truly very satisfied with ASID’s work, which is bringing lots of new knowledge into IPC as a whole and represents a very significant step in overcoming our amateur status.”
Enio Rodrigues – Gerenal Director and Teacher. Idamaris Costa, Principal at Osny School
“Our relationship with ASID started in 2011. And from then on we have only gained from this partnership. It allowed us to have a diagnosis of our institution, where we could see our strong points and also our weaknesses and where we could improve them. It has given us the tools to make ourselves self-sufficient, so we can only thank them.”
Kátia Cilene, Pedagogue.
“When they started their activities, ASID brought us new ideas and made it so that we could attain new collaborators and some actions to improve the financial area of the Association. We were able to make advancements in the marketing area, to facilitate the dissemination of the work we proposed to do. Through their guidance and tips on how to approach the elaboration and presentation of projects, we were able to take part in a project with adapted desks. We believe that in 2015 we can grow with this partnership and develop new projects that benefit Multidisciplinar School.”
Eliane Reinert, Principal.
NILZA TARTUCE SCHOOL
“ASID has shown itself to be a committed and visionary organization. From their activities, I’d like to highlight the challenges they face in terms of awakening the importance given to the concept of social innovation, which contributes to the construction of practical, formative solutions in advisory services and in exchanges with the institutions of the non-profit sector of this same industry.”
Ana Maria e Silvânia, Principal and Teacher.
“In their 43 years, Primavera School has discovered and rediscovered ways of educating, learning and managing everything that involves people with intellectual disabilities. Because we constantly face difficulties and due to the specificity of our work, we maintain contact with organizations that have different proposals, however, none of them was as significant in the last few years as ASID. Thank you to each of our friends at ASID, who, with great competence, knew how to give us the support we needed.”
Juleide Vieira Ramon, Principal.
SÃO CAMILO SCHOOL
“Often times, Philanthropic Entities lack a direction for their actions, be them searching for partners for fundraising, the creation of Action Plans, adequate internal managing, among other activities. ASID tries to fill in this gap by “teaching us to fish”, that is, by passing onto our entities knowledge that allows us to walk on our own two feet, with ASID always at our side.”
Rita do Prado – Principal.
VIVIAN MARÇAL SCHOOL
“With this new knowledge brought by ASID, we, as an institution, were able to notice that there are various possibilities of applying this knowledge to our daily routines. Our view as an administrative staff has amplified. We were able to notice that some trouble spots still exist, but little by little we can continue to construct our story, with a more contemporary point of view, with adjustments and also with the clarity of where we must start from.”
Ilse, Vice Principal – Mercês Office.
