In the then year of 1889, November 15, the Presidential Federative Republic was born. This event was marked by the figure of Marechal Deodoro da Fonseca as the protagonist of the proclamation, becoming the first President of the Brazilian Republic, from 1889 to 1891, during a provisional government.

This important historical moment in Brazil gave rise to the first Constitution, whose function was to establish in the country the republican regime, following the presidential government. Thanks to the 1891 document, it was established that all Brazilians are equal before the law, that nobody could be forced to do something or to do otherwise than by virtue of the law, besides freedom of religious worship, participation in associations, freedom of the press , expression and exercise of any profession, among others. Subsequently, approved by the National Constituent Assembly on September 22, 1988 and promulgated on October 5, 1988, the Constitution of the Federative Republic of Brazil of 1988 replaced that of 1891 and is the current fundamental and supreme law of the country.

For us the IIN, nothing more essential than the emancipation of the Brazilian people. There is nothing else we cherish. At our juncture, we value independence, because our whole struggle is based on this: being able to help and ensure to young people and children, at the margins of society, their freedom: guaranteeing equal opportunities for all.

In Brazil the National Book Day is celebrated on October 29th. Being a set of sheets written or printed with the purpose of passing and registering an idea, books are essential objectives for the entire cultural evolution of a society.

There were times when some ideas recorded in books were symbols and tools of revolutions in certain countries. So small, but so important, the books have already been burned, buried, torn by clusters of people who disapproved of such printed ideas. Sign, this, without taking advantage of ideologies, the strength that words have.

The date of the 29th was chosen to commemorate the National Book Day because it is when the National Book Library was founded in the year 1810 by the Portuguese crown, which was responsible for bringing the first bibliographic collection to the country , coming directly from the Royal Portuguese Library, with more than 60 thousand objects composed of manuscripts, maps, books, coins and medals.

There are several genres of books, such as romance, suspense, drama, fiction, self-help, religious, documentary, school, among others. It is worth remembering that in order to publish a book, it is necessary to have a publisher who buys the idea of publishing the material of a certain author, but can also be done independently as, for example, in Amazon or even the new ones. -books that came to stay. That is, there is now a greater democratization in the publication of books.

With Gutenberg the first impression of a serial book was made due to its creation: the typographic press that gave origin to Gutenberg Bible with exact 642 pages and a circulation of 200 copies. This historical moment was marked as the passage from the Medieval Era to the Modern Era.

“Marília de Dirceu” was the first work published in Brazil. Its author, Tomás Antônio Gonzaga, had his book read by the emperor beforehand so that it was certified that the ideas contained therein were in agreement with what the Brazilians could read, already presenting traces of censorship that would last for years in the social political scene Brazilian.

In the year 1925, with the founding of Companhia Editora Nacional, editor and writer Monteiro Lobato, Brazil began to have more possibilities for editorial growth.

For the Instituto Irmãos Nogueira to foster culture is essential. There are more than 1,200 children assisted in our projects and our first goal is to transform lives based on the assumption that education is paramount to achieving these goals.

Book of pedagogical coordinator Jorge Felipe Columá portrays a nucleus of the Irmãos Nogueira Institute:

Entitled “Sentinela da Cidadania: actors and authors in the life of the favela,” the book speaks of affirmative action in communities with practical examples involving a community in Rio de Janeiro where there is a core of the IIN. For those who want to know and buy a copy is available at:

The United Nations is an international organization formed by countries, on a voluntary basis, to cooperate with each other and promote peace, as well as world development.

The United Nations Charter, well known among many countries, expresses the ideals and goals of the nations that have organized themselves to build a better future and is the organization’s main document. We can cite some passages such as:

“We, the peoples of the United Nations, resolved to preserve the coming generations from the scourge of war, which, on two occasions in our lives, brought unspeakable suffering to humanity, and reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, dignity human rights, equal rights for men and women, as well as for nations large and small, and to establish conditions under which justice and respect for obligations under treaties and other sources of international law be maintained, and promote social progress and better living conditions within a broader freedom.”

October 24 marks the anniversary of the Charter’s entry into force in 1945. The UN General Assembly in 1971 recommended to the participating States that the day be a public holiday.

For us of the Irmãos Nogueira Institute, it is essential to remember this important date for the promotion of world peace, since Brazil has been one of the countries participating in the organization since 1947, and in view of the detriment that violence has provided us for years on end. our society. Here is our remembrance, homage and wish that we have better days.

On the date of World Food Day, October 16, talking about nutrition and food is somewhat delicate. According to the United Nations, hunger kills almost half of the world’s children. Approximately 155 children are “chronically malnourished and may experience the effects of dwarfism throughout their lives.”

In Brazil, 821 people go hungry. And for those who think that malnutrition is only related to hunger, it is very much mistaken. Obesity is also a complicated latent reality around the world. According to UN Director-General José Graziano da Silva, “if we do not find concrete ways to prevent this, the number of obese people will soon become as high as the number of undernourished people in the world.”

In the face of this global reality, all organizations working for the well-being and development of young people and children have a key role to play in raising awareness of the alarming rates of childhood obesity (WHO – World Health Organization – already considers obesity epidemic), as well as an inexorable responsibility for the well-being of its supporters.

Children’s Day Instituto Irmãos Nogueira:

Taking all these points into consideration and creating a link with the children’s month, now in October, we want to highlight our concern with all these issues that involve the future of our country. The IIN not only supports the cause, but also aims to assist those assisted with basic food, food (breakfast, lunch, snack and dinner) in some nuclei where social projects are developed, in addition to having the nutritional support of specialists who believe in the organization’s ability to help those in need.

Our very thanks to all those who follow us day and night by supporting and supporting our children and young people, and, of course, of all our partners who made it happen at our last Children’s Day celebration on October 10.

Special thanks to Gabie Fernandes, our angel who helped us provide various activities and snacks to our children. Thank you very much for all your support and affection.

Thiago Lucas, 24, is an example of overcoming many children who are assisted by Instituto Irmãos Nogueira. Before becoming professor of the Institute itself, helping children and young people of the Black Belt Social Project, Thiago, better known as Mammoth, had terrible moments due to his life choices. If before Thiago Mamute lived without direction, addicted to crack and involved with the crime, today, after arriving at the Black Belt of Jesus, with only 38kgs, on account of drugs, the teacher recognizes the good that the social project did to the it and follows the path of awareness of the children and young people who are assisted.

His idea is to show them the right way and the good so that they do not have to go through what he went through. “I myself have had life experience of going through addiction, drugs and criminality and today I am teaching these children not to go down this road because I know it was a difficult road and it has greatly disrupted my life and my family. I was a crack user, I got involved with the crime, but I turned it around. I realized that this was not being good for me and today I am able to use my life experience to help the children and chart another way for them. I am able to show the way of right and wrong for them, “says Thiago Mamute.

Thiago arrived at the Institute seven years ago and went through all the processes that all children and young people go through. They study, learn a profession, take care of their health, and are motivated to find in the difficulties even more motivation to keep their lives on track. “For as much as adversities may find us, the most important thing is the honest choices you make,” he points out.

Currently, Thiago Mamute is a Jiu-Jitsu brown belt and teaches the children of Instituto Irmãos Nogueira. For Ricardo Cavalcante, manager of the Nova Iguaçu core project, the most important thing when a person arrives at the project is to take care of the body, the food, the spirit. So you start thinking about martial arts. “The important thing for us is that this person stay away from drugs and crime, because it’s no use to prepare a person to be excellent in martial arts if he is not going to use the path of good!”

In the midst of so many bad news that we are confronted daily in the country’s main news, some of them make us believe that social projects are extremely important in the life of communities. It is a reality that Rio de Janeiro is under siege. Trafficking, drugs and violence are killing us as if we were a country in a state of war.

As much as our war is veiled, there are works that are being done incessantly in search of regeneration. They are people who wake up every morning with faith that their jobs can redeem at least one life of crime. And when that happens is a reason for happiness not only for those who are ahead of social projects, but for all the relatives of this life that now has a chance to move forward as a citizen of good.

In Jesus’ Black Belt it is no different. Located in Nova Iguaçu, this social project has as main objective to remove men, women and even children who are on the margins of society, contributing to the crime continue to make victims. According to project manager Ricardo Cavalcante, the case of Marlon Zandonight is more like the ones we see every day on television, a former drug dealer who, in addition to selling drugs, was also involved in assaults and other crimes.

However, this case begins to differ from the others from the moment that Marlon began to participate, about six months, of the Black Belt of Jesus. “First I am teaching him to live, the competitions and the martial arts, for us now is not important, first we are taking care of his body, his teeth, his food, his soul, the spirit, and then we think about competing . What’s important is he’s in here, away from traffic, crime, drugs, and assault, you see. This is the most important. He has been training Jiu-Jitsu and MMA, but first we have to do something well done because it’s no use having a super fighting athlete who continues to commit crimes”, says Ricardo.

Today, Marlon has dropped his weapons and is being re-socialized. His mother Andreia is very happy with this new phase in the life of her son Marlon: “My son was giving me a lot of trouble getting involved with drugs, with wrong people, with the traffic and I was suffering a lot from it, I had high blood pressure, I lived behind him in the street. He made me very sad about this, but today my son has been in the project for six months and has become a new boy, a new boy, regenerated and socialized again. In our family now we all believe in him again. I am very grateful to the staff of this project because, thank God for this project, I hope it continues in the way of good”, says Andreia.
