History Logs

Project Description

Region: South America

Country: Brazil

Location: Sorocaba, SP, Brazil

Total Budget: $41,518

Areas of Focus: Basic education and literacy, Community economic development

This project and Global Grant is phase 1 of a 2 phase project that will assist children in poverty between the ages of 6 and 13 years old with education and a safe place to stay as well as at risk youth between 13 and 18 years old with education, training and give them skills to be able to gain employment.

This first phase will focus on the 13 to 18 year old at risk children and will help to keep them off the streets, away from crime and drugs and provide them with training and education for gainful employment by 18 years old.

This helps the local economic development by lifting youth out of poverty as a result of their employment and adult leadership examples.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






DDF contributions in grey are pending approval of the corresponding district committee.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
