Sponsorship for Children in Brazil

by Associacao Fazendo Historia


The project provides familiar and communitarian conviviality for sheltered children and adolescents who have fragile or broken family bonds, who have remote chances of adoption or family reintegration. Institutionalization can have negative results on the psychosocial development when the child/adolescent doesn't count on an adult with which he can establish a stable emotional relationship.

There are 4700 children and adolescents aged 7 to 17 years able to be adopted in Brazil; most of them don't have a chance of getting adopted because they don't fulfill the most desired profile: girls, white, only childs, with up to two years of old and without any disease. Institutionalization is their fate, but that can have negative results on the psychosocial development, specially when the child/adolescent doesn't count on an adult with which he can establish a stable emotional relationship


The project aims to enable and encourage the formation and maintenance of individualized and long-lasting emotional bonds between children/adolescents and volunteers, previously selected and prepared. The project is a way of involving the community in the good care of sheltered children, offering them a chance to experience family and social life. The final aim is to offer these children emotional support on a long-time basis, which will help tem to build an autonomous life when turning eithteen

Long-Term Impact

The project provides secure and lasting relationships for children and adolescents living in shelters, strengthening their psychosocial development, and to enlighten community members to get involved with sheltered children and adolescents, contributing to the construction of their life projects. This is a lifetime relationship, with long-term benefit for the 20 children and adolescents who will participate.
