Food & Education for Children in Brazil

Why we need your help

Summary

Working with children as young as 2 who may otherwise be on the streets. This project will bring a safe place for kids to learn, improve nutrition and enjoy their childhood and development.

Challenge

Many rural families migrate towards urban areas in Brazil which means schools quickly become overcrowded. As many children spend their days on the streets leading to lives of crime we will focus on providing young children with access to education, providing more opportunity for the future. As a result of financial hardship and a lack of dietary education in the favela, many children show signs of malnutrition; weight loss, poor growth, increased susceptibility to illness and poor concentration.

Solution

Working with local community leaders we will fund more access to education ensuring the children have a chance to learn. At the Mata Escura project we aim to improve nutrition by providing students with 3 balanced meals per day. We also provide weekend and holiday food and fruit packages whenever possible to help ensure that children are well fed when not at school. The project employs a local cook to prepare the school meals.

Long-Term Impact

A suitable educational facility will help these children develop and open the doors to more opportunity. Job creation will benefit the local community and encourage all to get involved. We have begun to see the benefits of this work to improve nutrition with concentration levels improving greatly and the frequency of sickness amongst the kids reducing - please help us keep this up!
