- #SDG4: QUALITY EDUCATION - 08 days to Rio 2016 (português abaixo) "When you are part of the troop you don't notice somethings because you are in service, take your gun and go for your task. But at the administration I saw some policemen suffering with serious problems. The professionals are always judged by public opinion, but also need a more caring look at them. Three years ago, I started a campaign to collect adult diapers for a police officer who was shot and became paraplegic. After a lot of mobilization, we got almost a ton of diapers! (...) Education for me is the basis of everything. I have always searched to compementary income so that my children could study in good schools. They know what is the reality. When I take them to a handicapped friend, they see how life could be harder. Thank God I'm fine and, while I´m good, I'll keep doing good to others." – Lieutenant Silva, 52 years old ---- #ODS4: EDUCAÇÃO DE QUALIDADE - 08 dias para as Olímpiadas "Quando você é parte da tropa acaba não reparando, porque você entra em serviço, pega sua arma e vai cumprir sua etapa. Mas, na administração, vi que alguns policiais sofriam com problemas graves. Os profissionais são sempre muito julgados pela opinião pública, mas também precisam de um olhar mais cuidadoso sobre eles. Há três anos, comecei uma campanha para arrecadar fraldas geriátricas para um policial que foi baleado e ficou paraplégico. Após muita mobilização, conseguimos quase uma tonelada de fraldas! (...) Educação para mim é base de tudo. Sempre busquei complementar minha renda para que minhas filhas pudessem estudar em boas escolas. Elas sabem o que é a realidade. Quando as levo à casa de um colega cadeirante, elas vêem o quanto a vida poderia ser mais difícil. Graças a Deus estou bem e, enquanto estiver bem, vou continuar fazendo o bem." – Tenente da Silva, 52 anos #humansofrio #humansofmyworld #rio2016 PNUD Brasil United Nations Development Programme - UNDPUNDP in Latin America and the Caribbean SDG Action Campaign 38 minutes ago
