Mission and objectives

La Asociación Jadir de Taekwondo (AJTKD) es una organización de la sociedad civil de interés público fundada en Río de Janeiro en 2000. La organización desarrolla proyectos deportivos, culturales, sociales y ambientales y ya ha atendido a más de 7.000 niños y jóvenes en situación de vulnerabilidad social. La misión de AJTKD es brindar acceso gratuito a actividades deportivas, culturales y sociales para niños y jóvenes en riesgo social. Sus principales objetivos son: • Desarrollar proyectos deportivos, culturales y sociales dirigidos a niños y jóvenes en riesgo social; • Defender los derechos de la niñez y la juventud; • Promover la paz, los derechos humanos y la ciudadanía; • Promover la prevención de las drogas; • Promover la educación ambiental; • Contribuir a la salud y el bienestar; • Contribuir a la igualdad de género; • Contribuir a reducir la violencia contra las mujeres.


There is a growing need for environmental education and awareness in the communities that surround AJTKD in Brazil, as well as a desire to learn about and implement sustainable practices. At the same time, the lack of access to sports and physical activity opportunities for such communities is becoming a concern. The proposed education center should address this need by providing a space for hands-on learning, workshops, and educational programs that focus on conservation, sustainability, and the environment, as well as safe and welcoming space for children and young people to practice sports.

Task description

AJTKD is looking for three volunteers to draft a project proposal to establish a sustainable environmental education center in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, that will serve as a hub for learning and engagement on topics related to conservation, sustainability, and the environment, while also offering a safe and welcoming space for children and young people to practice sport. The center will provide educational programs and resources for students, educators, and community members, as well as serve as a model for sustainable practices and technologies.
