Presidente Tancredo Neves Rural Family House (CFR-PTN)

Our partner, CFR-PTN offers a professional agriculture and cattle raising course integrated with high school

The Presidente Tancredo Neves Rural Family House (CFR-PTN) was established in 2002. Recognized by the Ministry of Education, it is a high school integrated with a professional agriculture and cattle raising course. CFR-PTN is a Civil Society Organization, also recognized by the Ministry of Justice as a Civil Society Organization of Public Interest.

Based in the municipality of Presidente Tancredo Neves, in the Southern Bahia Lowlands, CFR-PTN focuses on young people aged between 14 and 19, who have completed basic education, the sons and daughters of family farmers, and have the desire to stay and be entrepreneurs in the countryside. 

CFR-PTN is also one of the institutions that are part of the UNESCO Associated Schools Network. Promoting a complete education, aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the school promotes the sustainable development of the region in which it is located.

CFR-PTN is located within a predominantly rural context, in which the students` properties are far from the school facilities. With the aim of facilitating access logistics, the institution uses rotation education methodology, in which the students spend one week as boarders at the school, with practical and theoretical classes, and two weeks at their homes, applying what they have learned, and sharing knowledge with the communities. Therefore, they become positive references, establish themselves as young leaders, and contribute toward improving the quality of life of everyone in the surrounding areas.

At the school, the young people learn both the base subjects and the specifics of the technical course, always with a focus on the rural zone. In the mathematics class, for example, the students go into the fields to apply concepts and calculations in the context of their productive areas.

Júlia Borges lives in the municipality of Teolândia, almost 280 km away from the Bahia state capital. A CFR-PTN student, Júlia lives with her parents – Elenildo and Gildava – in the rural zone, where she grows vegetables, bananas, potatoes, cocoa trees, bitter cassava, rubber trees, guarana, achiote, and rears poultry. Motivated by the CFR-PTN educators, Júlia envisions improvements for herself and her family in the rural zone. Besides wanting to study at a university, the student explains that the way they work has changed since she started to study at the school. “We feel that we have developed, mainly in the way that we grow crops, using the correct techniques in order to produce more, and with quality,” she confirms.
