Hummingbird spreads its wings over the community

CARF's Hummingbird Project in São Paulo is constantly and firmly spreading its wings over the community, protecting children at risk from the perils of the streets, drugs, violence and abuse.

This video presentation was created by Gerson, the youth monitor of the Breakdance workshops and leader of the AfroBreak Dance Group at our Hummingbird Arts and Cultural Activity Centre in Diadema, where many of the scenes in the video were registered during 2006, also in and around the community.

Youth like Gerson have only recently had access to computers and the World Wide Web and are now making good use of the resources made available to them at Hummingbird, thanks to your valued contributions.
Please take a spare moment to rate the video and leave your comments below because our youth are following these pages and are interested in how you view there efforts.

Embrace the ones you cherish...!

I know not everyone is going to like Breitling . While I think they are beautiful, I can understand why some wouldn't like Breitling Avenger . They aren't as 'rounded' as others like Tag or Seconda. Although stylish, Chrono Superocean have a certain old fashioned, harder-edged style to them. I learned later that most collections of Superocean were designed over 50 years ago and, despite some changes to the movements and minor aesthetic modifications; they are pretty much the same wristwatch as they were 50 years ago.

The look is flattering when you wear the Louboutin Shoes . They enable you to have the right style cutouts that one can ever see and find the perfect Christian Louboutin Pumps that will leave you purring like a kitten. The reason behind this is the amount of time and effort that goes into putting Christian Louboutin Boots together. The ultimate thing about Christian Louboutin Sandals will be the way things finally look on the feet of the person wearing them.

It is Hardy clothing provides you with designer hats, caps and beanies for more style and fashion craze. The only thing is that hardy shirt are a bit highly priced and it becomes difficult for common men to buy more than one or two ED Hardy Shoes . The designs and colors are no doubt unmatched and ED Hardy Shoes tend to stay long in the fashion world.

People tend to store either images to cherish or official data for future reference. They usually step into SMALL WONDER because of their reliability and durability. There are currently seven different formats available. SMALL WONDER DVD formats are supported by the most of the recorders. Some models also support the Dual Layer formats and the SMALL WONDER DVD COLLECTION . The Symbols in the format has its own significance. It denotes its compatibility and the version.

The coolest of the cool can be seen wearing these multi-functional Ed Hardy clothing . Of course, you can expect ED Hardy Shoes to be as fashionable as the others. Most of the hardy shirt come in vintage designs, making them perfect for everyday wear. You can wear hardy shirts in school, at the mall or even when just chilling out with friends at local hang-outs.

scarpe Hogan sent their first Hogan skate shoe design out for the public. This rudimentary design failed miserably. It failed because hogan donna failed to realize just how advanced the other companies had made the skate shoes even though for the most part they were smaller companies than Hogan scarpe uomo , at least up until this point. By the time they had decided to release their design the technical designs had been the rage, and Hogan uomo had to work to adjust the Hogan skate shoes to what the other companies where selling.
