CRI-Children’s Resources International aims at promoting happy, healthy and meaningful childhood, and above all, safeguarding the right to “childhood” for children both in Brazil and in Japan.

In Brazil, we mainly work with Monte Azul Community Association, a favela-based Anthroposophical entity whose goal is to improve the lives of favela residents through education, art, health and agricultural activities.

More than 100 volunteers have been to Monte Azul from Japan. One could work in the kitchen or in the vegetable field if without much knowledge of Portuguese, or work as assistant educators once they acquire some proficiency in the language.

Volunteers with professional experiences, such as those in early childhood education or in the field of health, are very welcome. Background in classic music is highly appreciated in the music school.

When returning to Japan, volunteers find themselves much needed in a growingly multicultural society. Brazilians are the 4th largest immigrant population in the country.

CRI has maintained close ties with Brazilian Schools in Japan, a peculiar form of educational institutions that are not formally included in the education system of the country.

Together with the Brazilian schools, we have held what we call “Multicultural Camps” since 2006 and “UNESCO Youth Seminars” since 2015, inviting pupils and students from Japanese, international and other types of ethnic schools to spend a few days together playing, singing, dancing and discussing social issues.

In 2018 we held the 4th World Social Initiative Forum (WSIF) in Japan working with the Goetheanum’s Section for Social Sciences, Monte Azul Community Association and the Japanese network of UNESCO Associated Schools. The friendship born during the Forum gave birth to the idea of a world network of Waldorf and non-Waldorf schools that pledge to work on the ideals for peace enshrined in UNESCO’s Constitution. The idea finally came to take shape in 2020 as the “Waldorf-UNESCO Network” was founded.
