PJER in amazonas finalizes formative step

Young rural entrepreneurs from Amazonas

A Local Economic Development Agency (Adel) and the Casa do Rio completed the formative stage of the first class of the Rural Young Entrepreneur Program (PJER) in the Amazon. The replication of the Social Technology, developed ten years ago by Adel in Ceará, is the result of the strategic alliance signed between the two organisations.

Twenty-one (21) young Amazonians have completed the Entrepreneurship course and Social Protagonism, composed of a set of workshops divided between the basic and advanced cycles. They also participated in mentoring, focal meetings and tutorials for the preparation of their Business Projects. The replication had the full collaboration of two young educators from Casa do Rio, Alexandra Guimarães, 20, and Tiago Lima, 20. Both participated in a Exchange in the first semester in Ceará and live in the municipality Careiro Castanho (Am). Adel's team was also present throughout the process, under the coordination of the Director of Programs of the organization, Aurigele Alves.

Second Aurigele, structural adaptationneeds have emerged in the replication of the PJER in the Amazon due to the local context and the reality of young people. With regard to the methodology, technology proved to be quite efficient. For the Director, adaptations are completely understandable and necessary and aim to ensure the best possible results. "We believe that the main challenge is still to make young people believe that they can undertake. Low self-esteem sometimes discourages young people. Presenting new ways of undertaking in rural areas is an opportunity for young people to realize that they can lead their life projects with resilience", reinforces Aurigele.

Maxwell Milk, 20, resides in the Divine Holy Spirit community, in the municipality Careiro da Várzea (Am). Your business idea is a restaurant focused especially on natural beauties of the Amazon, with the strengthening regional culture. "It will be a floating restaurant, addressing typical foods and seasonings. The PJER is being very important, the opportunity we're giving us. We have a very great expectation"., celebrates Maxwell.

Besides that, experience has contributed to highlighting the diversity of the country and the particularities of each regional context. The Amazon, although it's a rich place and extreme beauty, it's also a place that requires a lot Resilience of young people. It takes creativity and determination to overcome the hostile context experienced by much of the population of rural communities.

A cooperation in amazonian territory is necessary. Thiago Cavalli, Executive Director of Casa do Rio, highlights the importance of creating social protection networks for youth, through public policies or through partnerships such as the alliance between Adel and Casa do Rio, for example.

"I think these partnerships are beautiful when we find each other gradually. We need to start holding hands for our region. We can only work on the development of a territory if we do it together"., Reinforces Thiago. For him, amazon's youth is without perspective after completing high school or a graduation. "We need to think about how to solve this problem in a municipality that still needs to develop in the service sector, tourism. We needed to start creating a entrepreneurial identity in the Region of Careiro Castanho", emphasizes Cavalli.

 

Next steps

Adriano Batista and young rural entrepreneurs from Amazonas

The conversation was mediated by Adel's Co-founder and Communications Director, Ayobami Abreu.

Challenges and opportunities have been discussed in the world of work, with special attention to entrepreneurship and the role of young people and other groups in situations of socioeconomic vulnerability. Alternatives to promote sustainable development, addressing customizable business and acting models for communities, but that cause larger-scale impacts.

Adalberto Alencar stressed that it is necessary to think about issues such as income distribution and access to education in the search for a sustainable society. Isabel Viana brought the impact of socio-emotional actions for the inclusion of marginalized populations, that reside in peripheral neighborhoods with difficult access to public policies, the city, culture and leisure. Celecina Sales stressed that youth and the countryside are diverse, Multiple, rural and urban are increasingly convergent. Thinking about sustainability and entrepreneurship is thinking about the future being prepared for youth. "What a future are we preparing for these young people? How can we think of a sustainable future when young man's life is something disposable?", questioned Celecna.
