Driving onthe limit
"The limit" is a cliche among racing drivers, with very few having a real understanding of what the limit actually means. It is generally thought that when a driver drives below the limit, he is slow or conservative, and when he operates over or beyond the limit, the risk of losing control and crashing is greater. But that notion is incorrect."
For over 20 years Viviane Senna has been the driving force behind the Ayrton Senna Institute. The charity educates children and young people in 17 Brazilian states and more than 600 cities. Last year it helped more than one million students, alongside supporting the training of teachers. Inspired by the desire of the three-time Formula 1 world champion Ayrton Senna to build a better Brazil, the Institute, in cooperation with public managers, teachers, researchers and other organizations, works to improve teaching policies and practices. The Foundation is always in an on-going innovation process, consistently researching to respond to the challenges of a world in constant change.
"Rich men cannot live on an island surrounded by poverty. We all breathe the same air. We must give a chance to everyone, at least a basic chance. If we want to change something, we must start with the children through their education."
