Team Brazil

Team Brazil will include two boys from Fortaleza, and two girls from the host city of Rio de Janeiro. Team Brazil is championing the national campaign for a new public policy to ensure the rights of children in street situations. The campaign has made significant progress in recent months but requires continued pressure to ensure it is put into practice.

Meet the Team

Representing #TeamBrazil we have Dinara, Jonas, David, Gabi and Street Child coach Jessica.

O Pequeno Nazareno, Sáo Martinho

Three NGOs support the children representing Brazil in the Street Child Games. O Pequeno Nazareno works with street children and their families in the cities of Fortaleza and Recife in north-eastern Brazil. The organisation has grown from a small group of individuals doing outreach work with children on the streets almost 20 years ago to now leading the national campaign for a public policy for street children.

São Martinho, in Rio de Janeiro, supports children on the streets and at risk from their central location by the Lapa Arches, through cultural, sporting and educational activities, employment training and legal support. Since 1984, São Martinho has been fighting for the rights of street children. They also support the national campaign and are members of Rio networks supporting the rights of street children.

Street Child United also supports a youth-led initiative in Complexo de Penha, in the North Zone of Rio. Safe Space provides regular football sessions and activities for young people in Penha, providing participants with personal development opportunities - and a place to simply be children.

Integrantes do Movimento de Engajamento Político (MEP), realizaram um seminário com os jovens do Projeto Gente Grande, em uma das sedes d'O Pequeno Nazareno.

Os participantes conheceram um panorama com dados sobre a desigualdade social no Brasil e no mundo, e expuseram situações que demonstram os impactos do tema em seu cotidiano.

As juventudes se encontram, falam a mesma língua, ampliam a visão de mundo e se fortalecem para resistir e construir uma sociedade melhor pra se viver!
