The idea of 16 teenagers from Rio de Janeiro flying all the way to Norway to compete for athletics summer games this June has been brought attention of the Brazilian news. In May, the group has been subject of two articles in the media: one by Veja Rio, one of the biggest magazines in the country.

The piece approaches how did the  Casas da Noruega social project started in Bancários (Rio) and the positive impact of the sport and support for the kids. The second article was published by Ilha Notícias,  which focus was the personal growth of the group facing the new experience competing abroad as well as meeting a new culture in Scandinavia. Besides the physical training, the teenagers from 12 to 14 years old are having intensive English course held at Casas da Noruega school in the local community.

Today we celebrate eight years of Casas da Noruega. The Norwegian NGO was founded by Snorre Holand back in 2009 as a educational project in Rio de Janeiro. Over the years, we extended our activities and in 2017 we are proud to be a "family" close to 800 people. There are now 500 children in our projects (school, football, athletics, music), and approximately 280 families/mothers that take part in our food delivery program.
