Abandoned Street Kids of Brazil Trust - Task Brasil

Music and art play an integral role in Brazilian society. Helping disadvantaged children express themselves artistically benefits self-esteem hugely, and demonstrates their potential to wider society. We will employ 1 educationalist to coordinate music lessons to upto 60 kids/yr aged from 6 to 18.

Situation

Rio is the home of many young people who suffer from the effects of extreme poverty. In particular, their life chances are frequently harmed by social stigmatization, poor education, low self-esteem/expectations and a lack of encouragement and support at home. This makes it hard for them and their communities to escape the vicious cycle of poverty and low achievement and to fulfil their potential, and makes the apparently quick and easy rewards of criminal/gang related activity hard to resist.

Solution

The Art and Music at Casa Jimmy project will teach the kids skills and show them inspiring alternatives to the crime that many disaffected young people are drawn into. We will stage presentations at 2 exhibition / concert events for their families & local residents during Casa Jimmy's 19th Anniversary & Christmas. We will use this event to help us engage with the wider Rio community, thereby raise the profile of our work, inspire our existing supporters and generate further funds for the projec
