Instituto Ayrton Senna is the realization of the three time Formula 1 World Champion’s dream to offer essential opportunities to new Brazilian generations to develop their potentials so they can become champions in school and in life.

Their work is focused on education, an important tool to promote human development. They believe it is the most effective means to transform everyone’s innate potential into capabilities and skills to ensure one’s active participation in society. Since 1994, the Institute develops educational solutions to fight bad quality in public education that hinder millions of children and young people to successfully move on with their studies. These educational programs proportionally equalize quantity and quality, that is, they are reproduced in large scale, at low cost and yield effective results. To implement its programs, the Institute builds alliances with the private and public sectors and civil society.
