Working With Children in Brazil

For more than 40 years we have been helping the most vulnerable children in Brazil access education, health care and skills-building social programs. The stress caused by the Zika virus recently is an added burden for families in the communities we serve, who already suffer the effects of poverty and widespread crime and violence.

Brazil has the second largest number of murders of children under 19 in the world. Together with our Brazilian communities, we are working hard to change the culture of violence through child protection campaigns, youth advocacy groups and extracurricular programs that encourage kids to stay in school and off the street.
