Thanks to hundreds of individual supporters, including many from the Blogger Global Community, the Children At Risk Foundation completed yet another successful year, one of the most optimistic in 15 years of our existence in Brazil, with almost 1.000 children and young people attended.
This year looks even more promising and we have many exciting and ambitious plans for positive social change in 2009, but without your support none of what you see in this video retrospective would have been possible. The video was made by youth in the programme who only a few years ago never had contact with computers.
It only costs an average USD$400,00 a year to keep a kid protected in our Street Migration Prevention Programme. That’s all it costs to change the destiny of an at-risk child at Hummingbird, which was judged as one of the 12 best projects of São Paulo for the esteemed Deutsches Bank Urban Age Award 2008 in strong competition with 133 organizations. We did not win the $100.000 prize as we had hoped, but we were very proud to be among the 12 finalists.
YOU can help us to realize this year’s plans by contributing any amount or signing up as a regular monthly subscriber.
I will thank you and most certainly our children will too.
