The children were SO excited to see and discuss their work so far! We have asked many of the kids, and adults, what they would like to share with the world about the favelas here. Most of the responses have been something like this:
“We want them to know that it’s just a neighborhood like any other; there is nothing to be afraid of. Although there is poverty, there is strong sense of community and families lend each other a helping hand. There is hope that outsiders will want to come in and help provide opportunities for youth.”
We are so impressed by all their hidden talent! Here are a few photos from this session.
