The Fraternity in the Streets project, in partnership with the Soul Clinic, in Campo Grande/MS, promotes workshops for the residents. In the computer assembly and disassembly workshop, there are 16 students, 13 men and 3 women. In 2022, they had the theoretical classes and now the practical ones. They are responsible for the installation and regular maintenance of the machines.

They also learned how to make doughnuts. This opportunity offers new horizons and possibilities to our brothers and sisters who overcome day after day.
