SOL is a nonprofit organization and since 1965 encourages and promotes human development through brazilian culture and arts. By teaching craft techniques, we believe we can show people how to turn skills into an income activity.
We provide education in craft techniques and improvement courses for artisans, besides marketing the handicrafts produced by students in our shop located in Rio de Janeiro.
Created by Maria Thereza Camargo, SOL’s core values are:
– Promoting human dignity through work
– Using hands to achieve economic autonomy
– Appreciating of “Brazilianness”
