Our story began in 2007, when businessman Orlando (Buko) Kaesemodel Filho founded the Lico Kaesemodel Institute, intending to provide support and social inclusion to communities through various projects. The creation of the institute was a way of carrying out all the social work that the Kaesemodel family had been developing over several generations.

In 2021, as a way of honoring our president and sponsor, who always encouraged all of our actions, the then Lico Kaesemodel Institute, was renamed the Buko Kaesemodel Institute, without changing its guidelines, research and team.

In all these years of history, the institute has carried out several actions for the benefit of society, mainly with the idealization of the Eu Digo X (I Say X) Program, working on a larger scale and with increasingly more robust activities each year.
