Help Us Survive Coronavirus!

Brazilidade is a community-based organization driven to improve the lives of those living in underprivileged communities in Botafogo, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. We strive to create access to resources for individuals in our community--such as providing after school programs for our youth--which will provide long-term socio-economic opportunities. We aim to destigmatize the misconceptions associated with favelas and to drive people away from violence. Our tours and lectures offer an immersive learning experience for students, universities, and tourists that explores the social and cultural aspects of the favela identity. With guidance and resources, we will pave a path towards greater opportunity and develop economic sustainability. 

With no students or tourists to educate amidst the crisis, Brazilidade is struggling to cope with this pandemic. With your support, we want to continue to provide resources for individuals within our community and educational programs for our youth. The funds raised through this campaign will be used to directly benefit those living in the Santa Marta favela in Botafogo, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Thank you in advance for your support and helping Brazilidade
