PASSO DA PATRIA
One of the numerous favelas of Natal is Passo da Patria. It is situated on the outskirts of the city, on the shore of the Potengi river. About 6,000 people live there.
The aim of our support in Passo da Patria is to help counteract the vicious circle in which so many children and adolescents find themselves trapped. Together with ADIC (Associação para o desenvolvimento de iniciativas de cidadania do Rio Grande do Norte), we bought land and built a school for approximately 300 students.
Twice already the school won the support of UNESCO in the category "Preparation to the world of work and youth leadership" as well as the support of the FIFA "Football for Hope".
