UNIVASF location is historically delayed in terms of human development indicators such that in its 15 working years it has changed the destine of hundreds of Young persons who lived very far from the cities that hosted the main Universities in Brazil. Poverty is still a remarkable feature, however, due to the hard-living condition in such lands where the anual mean level of rain does not reach 10 mm and Education is certainly the best instrument UNIVASF offers to get along with this.
