Who we are

The Anglican Association Desmond Tutu was created in 2011 to be the legal entity of Casa Noeli dos Santos. We are a philanthropic institution that welcomes women (along with their sons and daughters) in situations of violence . We keep our address confidential due to the complexity of the cases.

We are a family owned and operated business.

In 2010, with the growing number of cases of violence against women, the mayor of the city held a meeting with leaders and representatives of governmental and non-governmental bodies to discuss this reality and elaborate changes, as the Public Ministry demanded a posture and action of the time management. Reverend Hugo Armando Sanchez, parish priest of the parish of the Most Holy Trinity, participated in this meeting representing the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil.

At the time, the creation of a support house for women in situations of violence was discussed, but the mayor said that the municipality was unable to afford this project. It was in this way that our Church, with the support of the municipality and the other participants, assumed the responsibility of founding this institution, even without experience at the time, to deal with cases of domestic violence.

We are a family owned and operated business.

E quem é Noeli dos Santos?

Nanci criou sozinha 4 dos 6 filhos e trabalhava como cozinheira em uma fazenda na campanha gaúcha. Dona Nanci dormia com um facão debaixo do travesseiro para se proteger dos peões desavisados. E com todas as dificuldades apresentadas pela vida, venceu e conseguiu construir sua própria onde recebia todos os netos ao fim de cada ano.

​Noeli aprendeu com as duas mães conhecimentos indescritíveis e importantíssimos para a sua formação pessoal.

Ela sempre esteve a frente do seu tempo e desde muito cedo defende o direito de minorias, principalmente o das mulheres.

Orientou mulheres em situação de risco a buscarem seus direitos e a denunciarem os agressores.

Montou grupo de voluntários para oferecer cursos profissionalizantes para mulheres pobres.

Em suas palestras, Noeli valoriza a autoestima e incentiva as mulheres a voltarem a estudar.

Ela é uma mulher que sabe da própria importância para o mundo.

Atualmente, Noeli vive em Caldas Nova - GO, é casada com o bispo Almir dos Santos, missionário que atua desde 1973 na região de Rondônia pela Igreja.

Como ela sempre lutou pela garantia aos direitos das mulheres, a equipe paroquial que iniciou o trabalho da Casa resolveu fazer esta homenagem em vida.

 
 

No que Acreditamos

Women in situations of violence , with or without a safe place to go, of legal age, without children, or with underage children.

All women are accepted regardless of their social class, race, ethnicity and gender identity (cis or trans), except for a drug user or someone with a psychological disorder, as we do not have a technical team to meet this demand.

 

How it works

The women are sent to Casa Noeli by the Women's Police Station (DEAM), after the report of the report of violence. They are also referred by the Public Ministry and the Military Police.

Upon arrival at the House, they are welcomed and then offered a personal hygiene kit, clean towels and bed linings. After settling in, the form is filled out and welcomed by the psychologist.

The house is open 24 hours a day and has the support of 5 collaborator s: 1 coordinator and social worker, two psychologists, one financial assistant and one collaborator of general support. All work from Monday to Friday during business hours. For emergencies outside of this time and on weekends and   holiday , team contacts are available on the home wall.

During the week, we follow a routine with activities and actions for the host and their sons and daughters who accompany them.

Monday: individual psychotherapeutic care;

Tuesday: afternoon of self-care;

Wednesday: afternoon of cinema with reflection or craft workshop;

Thursday: conversation wheel

Friday; in the morning psychotherapeutic consultations are carried out with children and in the afternoon activities are carried out between mothers and sons / daughters in order to strengthen their affective bonds.


In addition to the weekly routine, there is also the daily routine:

07h00: time to wake up, lunch:,:

7:30 am to 8:30 am: breakfast;

11:30 am to 12:30 pm: lunch;

3:00 pm to 4:00 pm: afternoon snack;

7:00 pm to 8:00 pm: dinner.

Inside the house there are several rules in order to maintain order, good coexistence and, especially, security. Some of them are:

1) It is forbidden to pass the address of the support house to anyone or even delivery services without the authorization of the house staff;

2) It is forbidden to open the gate without authorization from the team;

3) Women who work outside the home are allowed to go to work and any of them who need to leave to resolve personal urgent matters, also obtain authorization. They can only leave the House with authorization, but they are responsible for their own security;

4) Cleaning the house and preparing meals are the responsibility of whoever is in the house.

5) It is unacceptable to use any type of violence between them or with their sons and daughters;

6) The use of alcohol or tobacco is not allowed;

7) It is also not allowed to watch inappropriate content on TV or the improper use of the cell phone.


Failure to comply with the rules will result in warnings or even termination.

The reception period is from 0 to 90 days. Once they are welcomed, women are not obliged to stay at the Noeli dos Santos support house.
