Child sponsorship in Brazil
Child sponsorship helps entire communities to develop social mobilisation by including young children in activities like capoeira, soccer, dance, karate and digital studies. This approach also attracts the interest of their families to engage in collective activity and increases the awareness of young people in citizen participation.
Equality and development in Brazil
In the urban slum areas of Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, we are helping to empower local community organisations. In the rural northeast, we support projects that strengthen the livelihoods of family farmers.
ActionAid works with the landless movement, Movimento dos Trabalhadores Rurais Sem Terra (MST), to advocate for peasants' rights and to press for land reform. We have helped create a national coalition representing over four million agricultural workers.
We focus on networking, awareness of citizens' rights, strengthening family relationships and solidarity to help Brazillian communities bring themselves out of poverty.
