When we allow love to move us, God opens our eyes to see things that we can never "un-see". 

In early 2019, we learned about 165 Brazilian children living in poverty and facing the daily danger with the growing sex and drug trafficking in their community.

In October of 2019, we sent a  group of 10 educators to Brazil to do a week-English teaching camp with the children. Through this camp, as we taught them English, we also taught them about their worth, strength, and purpose. 

Through music, art, and play we taught each one of them that they are loved and fully capable of growing out of poverty through education and developing strong American-values.

However, we understood that helping them grow our poverty is not a one-week engagement. It's a long-term commitment. A commitment that we made with them. 

During that one-week we spent with them, we trained Education students from a local University to continue the work with them through English teaching and building up their personal values to allow them to grow into self-reliant, resilient children.

With the help of our community, we were able to raise funds last year to provide the children with a full year of supplies, food, and English classes. With your help, we can continue the work for one more year. 

With $97, we are able to provide one child with all he/she needs to thrive in the program: the curriculum, teachers, food, supplies, and so on. Would you consider helping us in this mission? No donation is too small or too big and we are excited to offer you some fun perks for helping these children out (please take a moment to see some of their pictures below).

We will be returning to Brazil in the first week of June, 2020 for another week long camp and to train more adults to help keep these children safe and growing towards becoming adults capable of walking out of their dire reality and break the cycle of poverty, abuse, and neglect.

Your donation is tax-deductible!

If you have any questions about this program or would like to learn more before making a donation, please reach out to us at [email protected] and we will be happy to share more details with you.

Thank you for allowing Love to Move you!
