"The Favela Foundation was set up in 2017 with a very simple goal, to contribute to the development and growth of sustainable social and educational projects in the favelas of Brazil.
It is our firm belief that access to education and social welfare should not be restrictive and we, together with partners across Brazil, work towards a brighter future where there are no boundaries to these opportunities."
Chairperson of The Favela Foundation
WHAT WE DO
Real change on the ground
We aim to provide educational opportunities to the citizens of Brazil's favelas by working alongside established projects on the ground who are in pursuit of real change for these outstanding communities.
Equal opportunities for all
We help fund NGOs who work in Brazil's favelas offering free English classes to the children and adults of the favelas, alongside a range of other exciting classes and welfare programs aimed at providing opportunities for those most in need of support.
WHERE WE OPERATE
Our shared experience of Brazil comes from Rocinha, Rio de Janeiro - the country's largest favela. We hope to continue providing support for those living in Rocinha, as well as expanding further into Rio and Brazil.
