Filhos do Céu Association ( Children from Heaven Association) is located at Bairro de São Pedro, in the surroundings of Arraial d’Ajuda, Brazil, which has about 20,000 inhabitants. More than half of the population is located on the outskirts, living in substandard housing and as the political crisis that Brazil is going through is very serious, much of the population does not recognize the legitimacy of the current government and the situation of economic inequality has deteriorated a lot in past months.
Lacking conditions and opportunities, around 150 children and teenagers, from 3 to 15 years old, benefit from educational alternatives on Filhos do Céu Association facilities.
Aiming to improve life and education quality, the association develops an educational work, through cultural and pedagogic activities, as well as sports, contributing to the moral, ethical and educational formation.
Healthy experiences and proper nutrition are given to prevent them from ending up on the wrong path.
Nowadays, Filhos do Céu Association needs volunteers and financial resources for a reform that will allow them to welcome more children and young people. Direct donations are the best way to do so.
For Barbara Pascalli (fundraiser of the Association) the ideal volunteer is “the one who comes to give, to surrender, to listen, to love, putting his own talents and privileges at community service.”
She also believes that “we are a single human family with the same common path” and through the partnership developed between World Life Experience and Filhos do Céu Association it will be possible to make a difference and raise awareness of the values that they share, because “together we will have the strength to walk this path of solidarity and love”.
