Provide biblical, theological, pastoral, social, and pedagogical training and capacity building of Christian and social leaders with animation or management responsibilities in popular and ecclesial movements.
The CESEEP is a Latin American ecumenical centre of popular training, founded in 1982, which aims to provide services to leaders of social movements and communities of different Christian churches in their pastoral and human development work. Its headquarters are in São Paulo, but the territorial scope of its activities is Latin America and the Caribbean. It was designed by a group of bishops, pastors, Biblical scholars, and social scientists. Inspired by the proposal for Popular Education developed by the educator Paulo Freire, the CESEEP, from its origins, placed itself at the service of popular movements, social pastoral work, communities and churches in the monitoring of their work.
