Help to protect 750 children of Sao Paulo, Brazil. The Fundacao Cafu institute ensures that children from 3 to 17 years old are protected from the social hazards of a region with no support from the public policies. Keep the children away from drugs and criminal activities through the practice of sports like soccer, basketball and volleyball and cultural activities like music, painting, singing and dancing.

Sao Paulo is a big city with 16 million people, divided in 96 regions, many of then with big social vulnerability and no social or economics programs to protect the children from the risks of criminality and drug abuse. The Jardim Irene is a region with no public policies to protect their children. 67,2% of the families survives with less than US$190 per month.


The Fundacao Cafu developed the project "Brincando de Bola" to keep 750 children out of the streets offering classes of soccer, volleyball, basketball, capoeira and judo and artistic activities like music, dance and graffiti.

Long-Term Impact

The children are introduced to the discipline and structure to prepare for adulthood.
