Education and Innovation

Instituto Shopping Recife

More than 48.100 people impacted

The Institute consists of Shopping Recife‘s corporate social responsibility area. It is a private social investment by brMalls in partnership with JCPM, Magus e Milburn.

Since 2007, Instituto Shopping Recife‘s mission is to develop, and support actions and projects focused on creating opportunities for residents of the community of Entra Apulso and around the mall. The project‘s vision is to be recognized as an agent of social development.

The community impacted by the project is Entra Apulso, which has over 12,000 inhabitants. The community faces problems related to the lack of paved roads, sanitation, water supply and drainage. The streets are narrow, with internal alleys, irregular accesses and is difficult to get around. The region aggregates many local productive enterprises, basically focused on the service area, with emphasis on the beauty and food segments.

Instituto Shopping Recife presents 4 pillars of action in the community:

  1. Education
  2. Professionalization
  3. Culture, sport and leisure
  4. Community living

Pillars of Action

In the education pillar, the institute supports the initiatives PulsArt, Pulsando Educação and PulsaTEC and ISR English projects. In the second pillar, which is professionalization, its focus is to train residents for work and entrepreneurship through a learning program, partnerships with Training Institutions and Incentive to Community Entrepreneurship.

In addition, the institute encourages culture, sports and leisure through the initiatives Dança Pulsante and Esporte Pulsante, Art Education workshops and external experiences.

Finally, the pillar of Community Living promotes good collective practices with socio-cultural events, sustainability and health and interventions in the community.

In its 12 years of activity, 48,100 people have been impacted by Instituto Shopping Recife. While 6,804 people were impacted by Education projects, 8,036 people were affected by the professionalization pillar, where 15% were placed at Shopping Recife.

Inclusion and Accessibility

Understanding the importance of diversity for society and thinking about the consumer experience, brMalls started a series of inclusive actions and activities at its events in 2019. Changes were made in the structures and production of new accessible toys, in addition to more specific training for promoters, to bring and improve the experience of the events for all customers.

The company also began to rethink the choice of promoter professionals who will be with customers. This way, it started promoting greater humanization, diversity and empathy in events and reinforced the purpose of being a destination of happiness and opportunities.
