Family Reference Program
Since 2019, the program has offered psychosocial support and active care to families in all municipalities affected by the dam collapse or involuntary removals. Members of the family nucleus are monitored through a professional called Family Reference, until they have reached a degree of autonomy that allows them to follow their routine independently.
"Being able to be present in a person's life, in light of the fragility in which they find themselves, and strengthen them in some way, makes a big difference. The Family Reference program provides this, with humanized and personalized psychosocial monitoring, based on the context of the members of each family and the identification of impacts, we draw up a systematic monitoring plan"
Roberta de Souza, Family Reference professional.

Semeando Esperança [Sowing Hope]
Conducted since 2019, the project has already contributed to over 70 women redefine their pain of loss and grief through art therapy. Through the technique of free hand embroidery, they tell their life stories, their experiences and their relationship with the territory where they live in workshops held online, during the pandemic. They have produced a total of over 500 pieces. Between October and December 2021, Inhotim, in Brumadinho, received the “Histórias do Vivido – Sementes da Esperança” [Stories of Life - Seeds of Hope] exposition with the work of the students, including Geralda de Fátima Ribeiro Pereira.
In addition to the financial reparation of those affected, we are committed to full reparation. To date, over 13 thousand people have signed an indemnity agreement with Vale, between civil and labour. And to enable them to plan their future under the new economic and socioenvironmental conditions, the indemnified people have access to the Full Assistance Program for Affected People.

Check out the fronts of the program
- Individualized care to families through a reference professional;
- Support given through active and empathetic listening and articulation of the set of necessary assistance, identified during the consultation;
- Referrals of psychological support demands for care in the public network. Vale has invested in strengthening municipal public policies, by transferring financial resources and equipment to ensure the best assistance to those affected.
- Guidance on the conscious use of financial resources received in indemnities and/or donations, considering the domestic economy, promoting habits and daily attitudes appropriate to the individual and family profile;
- Support to people and families in directing their finances, providing greater quality of life and autonomy through knowledge about financial education.
- Identification and analysis of the documentary situation of the properties of interest;
- Conducting inspections at the properties of interest to certify their housing and/or production/marketing conditions;
- Support in the search for property with a good location, close to schools, basic health care units, among others;
- Support in moving to the new property.
- Analysis of the productive capacity of the business and initial study of economic viability, which will support the decision of the individual or family nucleus to create a business plan for productive resumption of the rural property management, fiscal and tax responsibilities;
- Preparation of business plans for the individual and collective rural and/or urban productive recovery, which support rural properties and allow quality of life for people.
Over 4,000 people have already been served by the program, which is voluntary, free and available to everyone who is entitled to financial compensation.
Active community participation
Strengthening Social Participation
Exercising citizenship, in a democratic manner, is capable of making society more integrated, prosperous and developed. It is with this belief that the Strengthening Social Participation project has given community leaders in 10 municipalities qualification and training on topics such as ethics, politics and citizenship, notions of public management, among others. The objective is to contribute to the exercise of consciousness and the practice of rights and obligations of citizens and public authority in the community.

Sport and Leisure Tracks
Held in partnership with Sesi-MG, the initiative has contributed to training professionals linked to the public network or social organizations in the areas of education, social assistance and sports, since 2021. With support from the city government, the Knowledge, Sports and Leisure Tracks project promotes content and methodologies that recognize and stimulate the practice of physical exercise as a right, with an emphasis on promoting values and human development.

DIY – Do it Yourself
Galera Mão na Massa [Hands-on Crew]
Creativity and innovation also go hand in hand in the Galera Mão na Massa project. With Vale's partnership with EcoCreator, children and adolescents, aged 7 to 17, can enrol in free workshops in the areas of programming, robotics, 3D modelling and the internet of things, which take place between March and June 2022.
The goal is to transform young people into leaders of social, economic and human evolution. In free workshops, young people learn, for example, to model and 3D print, to create apps that solve everyday problems, fun robots that interact with the environment through sustainable sensors and virtual reality glasses.
