Brazil is the fifth-largest country in the world – both geographically and in terms of population. It is truly massive, sharing borders with every other country in South America except for Ecuador and Chile.

Your support makes all our work possible to help children in crisis in Brazil.

The Amazon rainforest – recognized for having the greatest biological diversity on the planet – sprawls over the country’s northern half, with rugged mountains to the south. But despite its wealth of natural resources and beauty, Brazil suffers from staggering poverty, rising inflation, unemployment, and a lack of social development.

Challenges for Children in Brazil

In Brazil, children’s very lives and futures are at risk, as they struggle with poverty and a lack of educational resources. Right now, children in Brazil need your help.

  • Forty-five percent of children in Brazil live in poverty
  • About 18 million children live in households that are surviving on less than $90 a month, or around $3 a day
  • Roughly 8.8 million children in Brazil are deprived of an education
  • Approximately 7.6 million children lack access to clean water and sanitation
