The Lowtons Foundation for Education and Culture (FUNLEC) is guided by a pedagogical proposal based on seven principles: God, Family, Morality, Nature, Education, Homeland, and Work. Thus, all classes taught at FUNLEC are planned to:
Provide individuals with a deep connection with God, recognizing Him as the architect and balance of the universe, holder of values and good feelings;
Highlight the family as the foundation of the human being, being the environment of formative experiences of personality;
Reinforce morality, considering it as a means to value the customs and attitudes necessary for social balance, based on philosophical, humanitarian, and spiritual arguments.
Contemplate nature as the source of biodiversity and present paths for ecological balance;
Understand education as the indispensable path to elevate levels of apprehension and expansion of knowledge.
Understand the indispensability of carrying out good deeds in the country where one lives, as a way of appropriating oneself as a citizen and human being.
Find in work a way to materialize the retention of knowledge and improvements.
CURRENTLY, FUNLEC’s proposal, guided by seven principles – God, Family, Morals, Nature, Education, Country, and Work – is being carried out in six locations, serving more than 4,000 students with the help of approximately 500 collaborators, as well as government support through partnerships and municipal governments.
Thus, it is possible to provide children, adolescents, and young adults with education starting from primary school, covering the expected basic curriculum, along with artistic and sports representation and language learning. Furthermore, they offer higher education programs such as Administration, Library Science, Physical Education (both bachelor’s and teaching degrees), and Pedagogy.
Envisioning quality education is one of the most entrenched Masonic objectives. In 1965, a solid foundation was laid for the educational system that today is one of the largest and best when compared to other proposals from the private sector in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul. This is a discussion that predates the separation of Mato Grosso, which came to fruition after two decades of intense planning regarding the commitment to human intellectual and spiritual development, in partnership with state and municipal education secretariats, which provided teachers to carry out the proposal and contributed to the materialization of this idea.
