In 2017, DP World Santos developed an important project called Global Education Program. DP World, the terminal’s shareholder, designed the project, which is being carried out in over 70 countries aiming to raise awareness about port logistics among children and young people in the regions where the company operates.
DP World Santos chose the Monte Cabral Municipal School, located in Continental Santos to carry out the project.
The program has eight modules that cover topics related to the operation of the terminal, associating learning about the port to regular school subjects and sensory activities. In each module, a DP World employee goes to the school to teach about his area of expertise and work.
At the end of all modules, students are taken on a visit to DP World Santos to see in practice what was taught during class. The visit also includes a catamaran tour through the Port of Santos, a bus visit to the terminal’s operations area and the awarding of certificates.
