After all, creativity transforms education.

And education transforms the world.

A transformation of our essence

Created in 2008, the former Instituto International Paper, already invested over 14 million reais in the development of the communities which we are a part of. Restless by nature and always seeking to promote reflections, challenges and real transformations, we changed our name in 2021 to Instituto Chamex,connecting us to the endless possibilities Chamex allows us every day. This change added more creativity to the developed projects.


Instituto Chamex believes that quality education is key to transform our society.

But we know that promoting quality education for more and more people, in a complex reality as ours, is not an easy task.

It is necessary to go beyond the basics, through significant and structural changes.

And this requires CREATIVITY.

Creativity to face childhood as a period of free imagination and endless possibilities.

Creativity to enable the insertion of young people into a creative economy.

Creativity to go beyond theory and stimulate, in practice, innovation in the way our teachers teach.

Creativity to encourage students, teachers, and agents of education to develop themselves by putting their ideas on paper, realizing them in practice, and seeking innovative solutions for our society’s problems.

Creativity in the way we choose and unite with partners who have the courage to evaluate new models in an educational structure that badly needs to reinvent itself.

We do all this through our projects.

We were born with the purpose of encouraging, through education, the use of creativity as a source of transforming solutions for the world and society.

But we do none of this alone.

We act in a network, joining forces and articulating diverse actors to create, implement, and support projects that aim to develop students, teachers, and education agents in the construction of an education that is accessible to all, more inclusive and equitable.

An education that uses creativity to help break paradigms, drive change, and accelerate solutions.

That can generate real changes and transform realities, making it possible to draw, on a blank sheet of paper, a new future for thousands of Brazilians.

A future that brings with it the change we want to see in the world.

Join us in this journey.
