Manaus (AM) – The governor of Amazonas, Wilson Lima, launched, this Tuesday (14), the accreditation notices for the School Meal Regionalization Program (Preme) and the School Furniture Regionalization Program (Promove), which add up to investments of R$ 43.1 million.

During a visit to the Marcantônio Vilaça I Full-Time State School, in the north zone, governor Wilson Lima highlighted that both notices benefit students from the state network and strengthen the primary sector, mainly rural producers and furniture makers.
“These are programs that I strengthened during my government and we have, every year, increased the amounts made available for these purchases. On the one hand, we promote local producers and on the other hand, we guarantee quality in both the lunch and the school materials that we have placed in schools in the State”,
said Wilson Lima.
State deputies João Luiz and Thiago Abrahim accompanied the governor on the agenda; the Secretary of Rural Production, Daniel Borges; the CEO of the Amazonas Sustainable Development Agency (ADS), Michele Bessa; and the deputy executive secretary of Education of the Capital, Rute Lima.

The School Meal Regionalization Program (Preme) is aimed at producers, rural producer organizations and agro-industries and guarantees quality and healthy school meals to students in the state education network in the capital and interior of Amazonas.
“I think it is a very nutritious food. It is something that provides sustenance for the student, from coffee to preparing a snack, which is on the way out. I think it is a very tasty food and that it is something that provides sustenance for a student who spends the day at school, an integral school”,
said Wanna Laura, 17, a third-year high school student.
To comply with this notice, the Government of Amazonas, through the State Department of Education and School Sports, made more than R$35 million available. The program is run by the Amazonas Sustainable Development Agency (ADS).
