We are a private, Brazilian, non-profit making institution, created by the engineer Norberto Odebrecht in 1965.
Our primary purpose is to combat poverty and inequality. We work towards building a more responsible, harmonious, solidarity-based society, with equal opportunities for all.
With over 55 years of history, we are inspired by the legacy of our founder, based on a philosophy of life, grounded in education and work – Odebrecht Entrepreneurial Technology (TEO), systematized in a series of books written by Norberto Odebrecht.
