On November 30th New Acropolis Brazil received from the Federal Chamber of Deputies the medal for ‘Legislative Merit’ for its work in the service of society.
This award pays tribute to entities, Brazilian or foreign, that have carried out or are carrying out significant service work for the community.

A “Medalha Mérito Legislativo” é uma homenagem que pode agraciar autoridades, personalidades, instituições ou entidades nacionais e estrangeiras que, em certo momento da história do País, realizaram trabalhos que tiveram repercussão e trouxeram algum amplo beneficio ao povo brasileiro. Trata-se de um reconhecimento do nosso trabalho de valorização da filosofia, cultura e voluntariado, que vem contribuindo, continuamente, para a formação do ser humano e a promoção do diálogo, para além das diferenças. A homenagem reforçou nosso compromisso de continuar trabalhando para fazer florescer o que o ser humano tem de melhor. O evento foi televisionado e transmitido ao vivo via Facebook, e contou com a presença de voluntários da instituição.Parabéns Nova Acrópole e todos os voluntários que tornam esse sonho, de fazer do mundo um lugar melhor, possível!

The program ‘Child for the Good’ provides social, educational and medical services on a regular basis and free of charge, to children from 4 to 16 years of age, in low-income communities living near the New Acropolis Brasilia Center. The project goal is clear; to provide a better future for these children and to contribute to their human development through the theoretical and practical training in music, ballet, martial arts as well as educational support in various subjects.

The program currently serves more than one hundred girls in the ballet workshops (baby class, initial, basic and intermediate), and nearly one hundred girls and boys in the workshops of choral singing, musical education, flute, violin, viola, cello and guitar.

Last December the 2016 course wrap-up celebration was held at the Poupex Theater, which for the second consecutive year made its stage available to New Acropolis.

All the children presented to their parents and the director of the program, Luis Carlos Marques Fonseca, the result of a year of hard work, perseverance and overcoming limitations.

A main objective was to provide health-related education and guidance, such as learning to regulate blood pressure and to know blood sugar levels, among other things.
A blood donation campaign was carried out on the same day.
