THE HUMMINGBIRD ACTIVITY CENTRE

Preventing children from hitting the streets
Preventing more children from hitting the streets is as important as recuperating those already on the streets.

Hummingbird's Street Migration Prevention Programme attends more than 600 children and young people in its activities.


The programmes of The Hummingbird Activity Centre are primarily preventive in nature, directed at community children and young people and promote the confidence, character, competence, and "connectedness" of that population to their family,
peers, and community.

These programmes provide a range of support and services in such areas as vocational training, health education, recreation, cultural tolerance and understanding, racial reconciliation, artistic expression, environmental awareness, and the development of leadership, conflict resolution, and decision-making skills.

In addition, the centre supports the demands of rehabilitation programmes serving the needs of street children coming off the streets.

The programmes work to increase global awareness of children and youth issues, strengthen the organizational skills of youth programme leaders, and promote greater knowledge and application of best practices for young people, increasing the effectiveness, scale, and sustainability of proven approaches to meeting young people's needs.

The team of young entrepreneurs leading our prevention programme
Youth Entrepreneurs lead the way: Hummingbird offers opportunities to local youth, training them to become advocates through their own actions for social change in their own community.

In between future postings we will present you with a pictorial view of some of the activities going on at our Hummingbird Activity Centre. The team of young entrepreneurs leading the programme comes from our local community where we attend more than 600 young people and their families. These talented youth mentors have themselves suffered the consequences of poverty and social injustice and are only too well aware of the negative effects this has on their community.

Most of the street children in the city of São Paulo come from underprivileged communities such as the one surrounding our activity centre. It is therefore important that we provide programmes that prevent other at-risk children from hitting the streets.

Talking today about my most recent purchase, Bentley GT from Montbrillant Datora Series, and the watch that is defiantly 'front row' at the moment when not sat proudly on my wrist, although that is always the case with new buys. Have to say Montbrillant Datora is not my favorite brand, I do find many of their pieces a little too fussy for my liking, although I have owned a few Breitling Avenger in the past and the pieces that I have had and the ones that I have today have been among my favorite watches.

Nowadays, wedding Christian Shoes can be found not just on stores but also online. And there is not just one brand of shoes to choose from but hundreds of those. One of the most popular wedding Christian Louboutin Pumps that women are craving to have is the Christian Louboutin Boots wedding shoes. Just like Jimmy Choo, Christian Louboutin Sandals has also been captivating the heart of women through his wedding shoes.

Take a look at this Addison Patent Baby Bag from Coach Outlet , could you imagine it is a diaper bag? Crafted of shiny patent leather and blue fabric lining, the Coach Hamptons presents its arresting look to all fashion moms. With the size of 16 (L) x 12 3/4 (H) x 6 (W) the Coach Legacy gives new moms a lot of space. One large inside pocket and several multi-functional compartments sufficiently meet your baby needs. Coach Luggage also comes with a color coordinated changing pad.

This scholarship guarantees their active participation at the Hummingbird Activity Center alongside their essential attendance in public schools. The scholarship helps combat child labor in high-risk families by preventing these children becoming new victims. The scholarship is awarded to those in particularly difficult life situations where survival often becomes a more important factor than the child’s educational needs and mental and physical health. As a regular sponsor you will have the opportunity to stay in contact with your scholarship holder and to follow the changes your sponsorship will be making in this child's life.

Intermediate Scholarships - USD$60.00 - $70.00 per month

This youth scholarship is aimed at developing vocational interests in young people as they grow with our programme, guaranteeing their commitment and eventually leading them on towards an advanced scholarship. A firmer step towards their personal life project. As a regular sponsor you will have the opportunity to stay in contact with your scholarship holder and to follow the changes your sponsorship will be making in this young person's life.

Advanced Scholarship - USD$80.00 - $100.00 per month

Aimed to inspire older youth reach their potential in whatever area they are developing natural or acquired abilities in programmes at the Hummingbird Activity Centre. The scholarship can be used to cover costs for supplementary, external educational courses or for extra training sessions and materials. Such funds would otherwise be an impossible priority for them to obtain within an impoverished family situation. As a regular sponsor you will have the opportunity to stay in contact with your scholarship holder and to follow the changes your sponsorship will be making in this young person's life.
