We believe in one
sertão transformed

Our walk in the sertão began in 2012 when José Carlos, who became known as Zé da Água, met Betânia do Piauí and its many poor villages around it. He came from the capital of Teresina, which is approximately 500 km to the small country town. The first actions focused on delivering emergency supplies such as water, food and clothing to people living in extreme poverty.

During this period, the hinterland was going through a prolonged period of drought, the worst in the last 50 years, so these emergency inputs were very important at that time.

However, after a short time in these emergency actions José and the other friends who supported the actions realized that these activities did not have the power to completely change the reality of misery and lack of hope that we experience in the sertão, it was then that in 2015 we joined friends and partners who share my dreams and ideas for a true transformation in the sertão.

Since then, we have been developing projects focused on transformation, empowerment and transformation of the region. We operate in 3 pillars of transformation: Education, Culture/Leisure and Income Generation.

Our mission

Promoting healthy local communities, families and individuals with full conditions to use their gifts and talents to achieve their dreams within a just society.

Our vision

To be a reference in works of social transformation by creating, sharing and mobilizing new technologies that benefit the Northeastern hinterland.

Our values

Technical Quality, Empowerment, Resilience, Protection of Vulnerables, Accountability, Gender Equality.

We are on the right way

The journey is long, but our work has been recognized

We are a team united in
pursuit of the same goal

We are 100% committed to
the cause we support and believe in.

One of the objectives of Instituto Novo Sertão is to encourage the sertanejo to be at the forefront of work thinking and carrying out actions that transform their reality. For this reason, we prioritize putting people from the region on our team who already have a lot of experience in the daily life of the sertaneja and know better than anyone the desires of the population and their real needs.
