CHILDHOPE - CRIANÇA ESPERANÇA
Kids of Hummingbird vibrate to the Reggae rhythms of the popular group Alma d’Jem during the making of their latest Video Clip, Nothing is Greater Than Love at our prevention center in São Paulo.
Wake up my Brazil! Wake up my Brazil! Our people need some hope.
This week we were delighted to receive positive confirmation from the prestigious Brazilian TV Globo that Hummingbird will be participating in their traditional and equally prestigious mega show called Criança Esperança, which unites some of the best in Brazilian entertainment in their annual effort to raise funds through the media to support social development programmes for underprivileged children in Brazil.
The programme is a partnership between TV Globo and UNESCO and this year marks the 20th. Anniversary of the quality show, which has since its beginnings received more than USD$50 million in donations, invested in more than 4.750 social development projects and NGO’s.
Criança Esperança has contributed towards bettering the lives of approx. 3 million children and young people, by helping to reduce infant mortality, child labour and sexual exploitation. Part of the funding has also gone towards helping at-risk youth by preparing them for a more professional job market.
Our emblem of the street kid lying on the Brazilian flag and rescued by the actions of the Hummingbird will be the central theme in the 4-minute mini-spectacular, presented by the children and young people of the Hummingbird Activity Centre. We are planning to unite classical tones from famous Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg’s immortal Peer Gynt Suites, together with percussion rhythms from our Banda Beija-Flor, combining theatrical elements with break dancing and capoeira by respectively our break dance group, Afro-Break, and Capoeira Beija-Flor.
Our Banda Beija-Flor are responsible for the music in the presentation of our mini spectacular during the Criança Esperança Show on Globo TV.
We expect to offer viewers an emotional and most memorable experience, which will hopefully contribute towards an even better result for the 20th. edition of this most popular programme.
|By the way, if you would like to support us in this action by making a quick USD$10 donation using the link at the bottom of this page, we will send you a beautiful coloured enamel pin with the above emblem, like the example here, only smaller. |
Just remember to include your name and address on the Pay Pal contribution page. We will certainly be grateful for the faith you show in our kids
