Since 2014, we have worked with José Expedito de Moura and the non-profit organization Tor zur Hoffnung e.V. to open up new perspectives for children from the Graviola favela in Fortaleza. There the children are instilled with a sense of teamwork, respect, diligence and reliability.
At first glance, Fortaleza in northeastern Brazil is a dream come true of sun, beach and sea. However, behind the boardwalks and boulevards the reality is very different: poverty, domestic violence and drugs are rampant.
