There are 4,700 children/adolescents aged 7 to 17 years able to be adopted across Brazil, but the fate of many of them can be to stay in foster care until they reach adulthood. The project's targets this audience, whose family bonds are broken, and have remote chances of adoption or family reintegration. When deprived of family life, they may face a painful process of maturation, having a harder time to find safe references for building their identity, autonomy, achievement of future projects.
