|Samenvatting||The Popular Centre for Culture and Development (CPCD) is a non-profit-making NGO based in Minas Gerais, south east Brazil. Founded in 1984, it has won national and international acclaim for its creative work in combining popular education with community development. This interview explores the Sementinha (‘little seed’) Project, which creates schools distinguished by their lack of a physical base and their determination to treat young children as equal partners in their own education. Sementinha was the first project created by the CPCD. Aimed at 4–6-year olds, it focuses on such objectives as developing mutual respect and cooperation, self-esteem and identity, citizenship and awareness of hygiene and health. It was held up as an ‘exemplar of an educational model for third world countries’ by the Organização Mundial de Educação Pré-Escolar (World Organisation for Pre-School Education) in 1987 and has since spread to 13 locations in Brazil and been replicated in Mozambique.|
