- #SDG1: NO POVERTY - Countdown to Rio 2016 10 days "I was born in Belford Roxo, which didn’t have any infrastructure. When it rained, my family and I would huddle together in one room, as the rest of the house was full of rainwater. My friends were in an even worse situation. Among the miserable, I was the poor one; at least, I was not beaten at home. As a teenager, I sold magazine subscriptions, and lived amongst those who read, awaking in me the desire to read too. I began to live in a different environment, which stimulated in me the desire to take my university entrance exams. I tried for three years before passing, managing on my fourth attempt. Today, I have a masters, a doctorate and I even give classes to students who—like me—came from a difficult life. I created the John Rawls Laboratory so those in need could live in the research world. The best part of being a teacher is knowing that I'm helping my students fulfill their dreams." – Dalton Franco, 37 years old ---- #ODS1: ERRADICAR A POBREZA "Cresci em Belford Roxo, sem nenhuma infra-estrutura. Quando chovia, eu e minha família nos amontoávamos em um só cômodo, porque os outros estavam cheios de goteira. A situação dos meus amigos era ainda pior: entre os miseráveis, eu era o pobre – e, pelo menos, não apanhava em casa, ao contrário deles. Quando era adolescente, me tornei vendedor de assinatura de revista e passei a conviver com pessoas que liam, o que despertou em mim a vontade de ler também. Comecei a viver num meio diferente e isso estimulou em mim o desejo de passar no vestibular. Tentei por três anos antes de passar, mas consegui na quarta tentativa. Hoje, tenho mestrado, doutorado e dou aulas para alunos que, como eu, vieram de uma vida difícil. Criei o Laboratório John Rawls para que eles possam viver o mundo da pesquisa. A melhor parte de ser professor é saber que estou contribuindo para que meus alunos conquistem seus sonhos” – Dalton Franco, 37 anos #HumansOfRio #HumansOfMyWorld #Rio2016 #EstaciodeSa Laboratório John Rawls Universidade Estácio de Sá PNUD Brasil United Nations Development Programme - UNDP UNDP in Latin America and the Caribbean United Nations Office on Sport for Development and Peace (UNOSDP) Rio 2016 SDG Action Campaign 2 hours ago
