São Paolo/Amsterdam , 11/21/2012
Today a major educational project is launched in the state of São Paolo, Brasil. Its based around the travelling Anne Frank exhibition and the debate programme on conflicting human rights Free2choose. The great value of the programme lies in the developed methodology to involve young people, and to influence their attitudes and behaviour in relation to themes such as discrimination, racism, violence and social exclusion.
In the presence of Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Máxima of the Netherlands an agreement is signed by the executive director of the Anne Frank House, Ronald Leopold, and the Secretary of Education of Sao Paulo, Herman Voorwald.

School Protection Programme
The Ministry of Education of the state of São Paolo has recently started a large-scale School Protection Programme with the appointment of more than 2500 Mediation Teachers. It is an inspiring, unique project, and the Anne Frank project fits seamlessly into it. The ultimate goal is to reach the 10% of most socially vulnerable schools in the state of São Paulo with the project: over 500 schools in the state of São Paulo as a whole.
Never before in the history of the Anne Frank House a project on this scale was carried out. This has only been possible thanks to the support of the state of São Paolo. Its also exceptional in an international perspective.
