Roberto Marinho Foundation was created in 1977 by the founder of Globo TV (largest Media Group in South America), on the premise that communication can be a tool for social change. The foundation promotes the right to education, and works to preserve the environment and cultural heritage of Brazil. Through collaboration with a staff of 200 members, the foundation implements programs in diverse settings throughout Brazil. Our main achievements are Telecurso ( metodology and TV programs for basic education), Canal Futura (TV channel dedicated to educational and social content ), Contemporary Museums, and projects of professional education and environment.
