The mutual plan/objective of this project is the construction of an Educational Portal– the EduKBr Portal–for a virtual Internet community that values education, quality of information and the process of knowledge-building. The EduKBr Portal Project is a technical-educational product idealized, developed and implemented by EduWeb with the participation and partnership of Kidlink Project in Brazil's multidisciplinary team. During 1998, Kidlink and Kidlink Project in Brazil were awarded and/or received governmental aid. Nowadays, the KBr Project coordinates the Kidlink in Brazil Project and is ahead of all activities and national socio-educational projects that support the development of the global Kidlink Portuguese Language Forum. The main goal of the new KBr Project and its Portal is to “spread the word” about the Internet mentality and support the Brazilian Educational System, with activities, cooperative projects, own educational web sites and communication/interaction in Portuguese to schools, youngsters and parents and professionals in Education.
