Residents of Cerro Corá, a slum located in the Cosme Velho neighborhood, on the south side of Rio de Janeiro, will receive a series of workshops in October.
Among them, the braiding and makeup, photography, graffiti, curriculum development and registration workshops for the start of the first Popular Work Point in Rio.

The activities are part of the first Work and Income Journey of the Movement of Workers and Workers for Rights (MTD), developed in partnership with the Levante Popular da Juventude.
In addition to the workshops, activities will also be carried out with the Rede de Cursinhos Populares Podemos+ and the presentation of the Popular Kitchen initiative, which will feature a partnership with the Mão na Jaca project in the workshops and courses.
The idea, according to the organizers, is that the activities unfold into permanent workshops and courses.
“We want to boost the generation of work, income and popular organization in Cerro. We invite everyone to collectively fight for decent work, income and housing, for the right to the city and to a decent life in the construction of a Popular Project for Brazil”, they say in a statement.
