The Buko Kaesemodel Institute is a non-profit society aimed at promoting beneficent actions related to social assistance, health, education and environment. Our vision of the future is to contribute to the construction of a less unequal society, enabling the improvement of the quality of people's lives, based on respect for life, solidarity and ethics. We work to provide community support and social inclusion through projects developed in various social areas, such as:
We work to provide support and social inclusion to the community through the projects developed, promoting more respect and equality in society.
“The support for social projects has always been present in the Kaesemodel family with the premise of offering opportunities to people who live in vulnerable conditions, by creating opportunities for healthy practices, self-esteem, and improvement of family conditions in communities in general.
In 2007, we created the Lico Kaesemodel Institute, which in 2021 was renamed Buko Kaesemodel Institute. The creation of the institute came to solidify all the work that the family had already developed over several generations. One of our strongest programs is “Eu Digo X” [“I Say X”], which grows more robust each year, aggregating partners and becoming well-known. Today, the Buko institute Kaesemodel believes in the importance of sowing for the future, supporting scientific research on Fragile X Syndrome and Autism, giving opportunities for diagnosis and knowledge about Fragile X Syndrome and establishing partnerships with foundations and institutes, aiming at a more egalitarian country.”
Our story began in 2007, when businessman Orlando (Buko) Kaesemodel Filho founded the Instituto Lico Kaesemodel, with the objective of providing support and social inclusion to communities through various projects. The creation of the institute was a way to carry out all the social work that the Kaesemodel family had already been developing over several generations.
In 2021, as a way of honoring our president and sponsor, who always encouraged all of our actions, the then Lico Kaesemodel Institute, had its name changed into Instituto Buko Kaesemodel, without altering its
guidelines, research or staff.
In all these years of history, the institute carried out several actions in benefit of society, mainly with the idealization of the Eu Digo X [“I Say X”] Program, working every year on a larger scale, getting increasingly more robust.
