Who We Are
At the Lemann Foundation, we believe people are our most valuable resources. Founded in 2002 by self-made Brazilian entrepreneur Jorge Paulo Lemann, the foundation is an extension of his values to empower and support Brazilians in reaching their full potential. We believe that supporting people will help us grow and advance our country so that it becomes inclusive for all.
What We Do
Our family foundation’s focus is on improving public education for the millions of children in Brazil and providing development for a network of diverse leaders dedicated to solving the country’s social problems. For that, we connect with hundreds of partners around the globe that are also committed to transforming Brazil. We are building, learning, discussing and working side by side with these global experts, governments, universities and organizations to identify policies and programs that can bring us closer to a more advanced and equal Brazil.
