Caminhos da Infância

This project was born out of the experience of many people.

As professionals, we believe that acting preemptively is crucial. Hence, we work to raise awareness in all stakeholders in our society to prevent child abuse and parenting negligence while promoting a positive parenting approach. Because childhood only comes once!
