In the late 70's, the coastal of state of the São Paulo had a population of 500 thousand inhabitants, and the metropolitan area of Sao Paulo city 100 kilometers (61 miles) inland from coastal, with an estimated 10 million inhabitants in 1980 (with an estimated 19,889,559 people in 2009)*.
Intensifies the desires of the residents of the metropolitan area to promenade bathing beach, tanning in the sun, and the beaches have a summer home for the coastal beauty of the paradise.
These desires and "social status" leads to speculation, contempt and discrimination against caiçaras*, deforestation in paradise, the corruption of the ordinances and authorities, document fraud and violence become customary and commonly.
In 1983 a group of young organized around 4 causes.
a) tree planting in urban areas of São Vicente (San Vicente city) in coastal of state;
b) appreciation of the local traditional culture;
c) resistance to speculation in the coastal cities and the fight against illegal evictions from land speculation;
d) appreciation of education as citizenship .
In 1984 the group decided to encourage education to improve the training and qualification of members, thereby enhancing the participation and involvement in social activities.
The group in 1988 for the first time faces a "war" with different weapons. The battle against USP* was done using the media. The USP requires a “fee to participate”* vestibular*, and the requirement for payment of registration fee for the entrance exam is the first major barrier (financial barrier / monetary control) faced by poor students.
After a few months, the FUVEST * cede the moral pressure and provides some exemptions from payment of Vestibular fee.
Also in 1988, is the same fact with the UNESP *
In 1989 some members of the group, went to USP and UNESP, and began the movement for access to public university and is free of charge, and for the aid to remain at the university.
In 1992 the members decided that the social activities should be done preferably in the periphery, where is the poor population.
The Department of Education in 1999 that prohibited public schools be used for social activities organized by people. Only the NGOs (non-governmental organization) were allowed to use the public schools.
And in 2000 the group of people founded the Instituto de Ajuda ao Aluno Carente (Institute of Student Aid Needy) continuing social activities in public schools and others places.
The Institute has 4 main areas:
1) Education and Qualification - Emphasis on teaching people;
2) Art and Expression - Emphasis on encouraging people to express their cultures, to search for, and to empower themselves as teachers, artists or leaders;
3) Environment and Health - Emphasis on the physical conditions for human survival;
4) Emergency and assistance - Emphasis on campaigns to collect donations (clothes, medicines, toys, food, and books & computers [to community libraries]) and urgent activities (rescue homeless in floods, landslides [or broken stones], food and shelter [ housing for homeless]).
The Institute of Student Aid Needy (Destitute):
a) guide the new volunteers for various projects * existing;
b) encourages the creation of new projects;
c) provides support to existing projects made by other groups.
