In order to create a better world, we need to make better people. To do that, we need your help.
Every day, countless children and adolescents are removed from the interaction with their fathers, mothers, and people legally responsible for them, because of negligence, bad treatment, violence, and abuse.
We offer a new life to these children and adolescents. Guided by the principles of Jesus Christ, we study the Bible and restore their dignity, life, respect, liberty, health, diet, education and recreation, culture, and family and community interaction. All of these rights, present in the Brazilian Statute of the Child and Adolescent, should be guaranteed in order that a person may be able to develop himself fully.
What future will they have? Who will be responsible for providing these rights, transmitting principles, and forming the character of Christ in these individuals who will build the world of the future?
You can be one of them! Support
the work of Brazil Kids and help to build a better world.
Brazil Kids is a not-for-profit, non-governmental institution established 23 August 2000. Our work was born as an initiative of a group of Christians who sought to contribute to building a better and more just society, based on the teachings of our Master Jesus Christ. We welcome, through the home model, children and adolescents in situations of risk and social vulnerability who have been removed from their families by the governmental authorities. Home in every sense
Our objective is to offer the possibility of organizing a new life-project based on the Scriptures. Besides housing, food, clothing and shoes, Brazil Kids' founders created a holistic approach to providing attention and support for the children.
Brazil Kids has three units called social houses (cottage homes) that are administered by educators who are responsible for giving to minors an opportunity to restore a healthy and pleasurable social interaction that was absent in the family structure in which they lived.
Our team is made up of Christians and professionals, who guarantee a specialized social and psychological treatment. We emphasize all the spiritual support necessary to promote overcoming traumas, rebuilding identity, and starting new histories. Results from 2011
This past year we were greatly blessed. We focused our attention on solving chronic problems, such as documentation and family needs for the children.
With God's help, we managed to fulfill all the government's requirements for documentation and recognition in the municipal councils.
We were blessed with the return of 20 children to the homes of close relatives, which left us with only 13 children housed on campus. Today we now have 19 children.
With the help of American brethren we have a support base of about US$17,000. It has not been an easy task to maintain the ministry. As we've always said, however, it is God's project. Our part is to put ourselves within his will and resources will appear.
The children housed on campus study the Bible at least two nights a week. The studies are directed by the house parents. On Sundays, they participate in the meetings of the local church in Cabreuva, including Bible school and worship periods.
As 2012 arrived, we began the year with five baptisms: Barbara (11), Wolmer (11), Gabriela (14) Jessica (15) e Gabriel (15).
We will follow up with these young people using courses for new converts that we have taught in the Jundiai church.
