KNOWLEDGE IS POWER
VIVA Relevante is a community that provides the tools necessary to build a better life.
OUR MISSION IS TO CHALLENGE AND BREAK CYCLES OF POVERTY THAT PERPETUATE INEQUALITY.
The skills that increase opportunities are never taught to us. This means that we are not prepared for life when it happens. And for the most disadvantaged in our society, this can begin and/or continue a cycle of poverty that perpetuates inequality.
This is how we open space to build community and to grow in a safe, positive and supportive place.
This is how we offer an education that goes beyond academics. We provide people with the tools to build a better life for themselves and a better world for us all.
We believe that the path to justice is through an education that offers belonging to all.
We believe that the systems that separate us need to be challenged and that we all must contribute to create a truly just world.
We understand that everyone has something to offer and that we should practice sharing with and learning from each other a little more.
There is space here for what you have to offer!
