In June of 2014 the Projeto Criança Fala experience exchange was carried out and the teachers and families made the following testimonials: they learned with the children that changes and beauty are in the small things, they learned to listen to the children, the learned that they play in a different way, they relived the joy of being a teacher, they came to know the reality of the children, the discovered that the children know how to do it, without organizing the space and are capable of changing. It brought the families closer to the children, and to the school.
A project was formulated in a park in Glicério, SP with the views of the voices of the children.

Production of videos with the children talking is a strategy to sensitize and awake the interest of the sponsors, schools, public managers in implementing the project making it expand. The project has the potential to expand through all of Brazil being implemented in different locations: schools, plazas, parks, community centers, hospitals, housing, and colleges.
