The Ayrton Senna Institute is the result of the Brazilian three-time Formula One winner, Ayrton Senna, long held dream of a country where everyone could have the chance to achieve whatever they wanted.

After the accident in Imola, Italy, in May 1994, Viviane Senna, the pilot’s sister, decided to take this dream forward, founding the organization in November of that same year.
