University students’ support to an NGO that helps children with cancer: Lessons learned in thirteen academic projects

João Alberto Arantes do Amaral and Erica Okazaki

International Journal of Action Research, 2016, vol. 12, issue 1, 38-58

Abstract: In this article we discuss thirteen academic projects undertaken by undergraduate and graduate students on the behalf of Casa Assistencial Amor e Esperança-CAAE (Home Care Love and Hope), a Brazilian NGO that helps poor families with children with cancer and other non-communicable diseases. Our intent is to share with the Action Research community our findings in an experience that involves co-operation between university students and an NGO that operates on behalf of children and their families. We present our findings by means of a systemic analysis.
