The Favela Foundation is officially launching in #givingtuesday week.

After living and working in Brazil’s biggest favela, a group of friends have started a charity to continue to support the communities who have become such a big part of their lives.

The charity was set up with a simple goal: to contribute to the development and growth of sustainable social and educational projects in the favelas of Brazil.

On the 28th November we will run a social media campaign with the hashtag #givingtuesday and #DiaDeDoar to engage supporters, past volunteers, and partners across Brazil. Then on Thursday 30th November we will host our official launch party with an authentic Brazilian meal, and Rio style party at Cabana in Brixton, where guests can find out more about the charity, and our plans for the future. We love to see you there! You can get your tickets here.

“We believe that access to education and social welfare should not be restrictive and we, together with partners across Brazil, will work towards a brighter future where there are no boundaries to these opportunities.” – The Favela Foundation
