Faith and social concern
In the spiritual field Senna made it clear how important faith was in his life. In conversations with his sister Viviane, Senna spoke of his desire to create a foundation to help needy young people and children. In November 1994, Viviane granted her brother’s wish and opened the Ayrton Senna Institute. In almost 15 years of activity, the institute has helped more than 4 million young people and children.
