This is Dandara!
A 17-year-old girl that lives with her mother and 2 younger brothers in the neighborhood of Pirituba, west of the city of São Paulo, with a medium level of vulnerability.

Dandara studies at a public High Scholl and is on his last year but needs to start working. Besides helping with the household bills, the work will also give her a new future perspective.

She found out about IOS in a poster on the school wall and decided to sign up for the ERP Business Management course. Smartly, Dandara realized she would have the opportunity to deepen her knowledge and learn about new technical tools, therefore, having more chances on the labor market.
The young Brazilian is never taken seriously! Today, high school students have the worst performance of Brazilian education system. And it gets worst. An estimate from National Household Sample Survey (PNAD Contínua / IBGE) shows that 40% of the young population, until 19 years old that should be in high school, not attend or have not yet finished middle school. The reality is even more cruel if you consider when this age group tries to enter the workplace. In Brazil, the biggest unemployment rate is focused on the age group of 14 to 17 years-old (42.4%) and unemployed between 18 and 24 years-old (31.6%), mainly between black (14.5%) and brown (14%) populations.

One of the motivations behind these scary indexes is the requirements made by employees regarding academic education are not fulfilled by the youth.

And Dandara's reality, unfortunately, is not an exception.
