Mission

We have many volunteers that come to us everyday willing to impart their knowledge and skills to others. We do not look at a persons education or how many degrees they have we look for the skills and abilities that will add to our philosophy that prosperity is the key to eliminate or reduce poverty.
Our staff is well versed in the areas we teach and serve others not for monetary gain but for the satisfaction of seeing others become successful.
Currently over 8 million children live and work on the streets in Brazil. Through education, health and micro-finance we are providing new tools for those who need help the most.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Community Leadership & Social Responsibilities

This is a cooperative effort for us and the Samba Schools with their social programs, social responsibilities in Brazil. We learn from each other what has worked in the past and try new methods of change.
This program also teaches individuals, corporate & leaders the importance leadership & social responsibility.

Population(s) Served

This program teaches how to look for entrepreneurial opportunities and exploit those opportunities to become self sufficient. We also teach others that giving also increases goodwill, integrity as well other benefits of giving to others.
We build on their skills they already have and improve on their methods. We also teach them how to use micro finance to build their business. Not everyone has the drive or determination to be an entrepreneur so we also teach families the skills needed to be self sufficient. We teach them the simplicity of growing their own vegetables in small tiny places.
We also teach or touch on finances, citizenship, community participation and more.

Population(s) Served

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Teaching how to be self sufficient is the key to prosperity and prosperity is the key to eliminate or minimize poverty.
The global economy operates on goods and services as well as supply and demand. Teaching the skills that people need to look for areas of high demand and little supply will help them become successful as well fill the gaps that are needed globally.

Our strategy to achieve prosperity globally is to teach people skills that will give them an advantageous edge over the competition. Most of our entrepreneurs as stated above have the entrepreneurial skills needed for success and just need a few tools to fine tune their business skill set. Every family that we teach to be self sufficient also teaches others they come in contact with how to be successful. That is part of our training for them to teach them that their success comes from their willingness to help others along the way. This in turn helps create goodwill, create new customers for them and spreads prosperity around the community they live in.

We have any volunteers that come to us everyday willing to impart their knowledge and skills to others. We do not look at a persons education or how many degrees they have we look for the skills and abilities that will add to our philosophy that prosperity is the key to eliminate or reduce poverty.
Our staff is well versed in the areas we teach and serve others not for monetary gain but for the satisfaction of seeing others become successful.

Since 2006 we have implemented the services described above and our success has generated other areas and gaps that we had not seen prior. We are still looking for partners, donors, volunteers and others who have skills in all fields to make our programs better and more efficient.
Housing and classrooms have been difficult to accomplish and is still an ongoing operation.
We have implemented and successfully accomplished many projects related to the environment. Such as clean water and recycling waste to create energy as well as recycling plastic bottles for lighting in homes and using them to make plastic tubing to be sold or given to families to connect to community water supplies in very poor and urban areas in Brazil.
