Sao Paulo is a huge 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. In many regions of the city there is no support from public policies to keep the children away from drugs, no activities out of the school hours and no protection against criminal organizations. The contact with quality music lessons is a reality away from the families reach.


The Passarim project keeps 840 children away from the streets, the student gets extensive musical training, including learning an instrument, the practices of instrumental and vocal (choral) music, plus lessons of History and Music Appreciation.

Long-Term Impact

The children are introduced to the discipline and structure to prepare for adulthood and the possibility to follow the music as a profession.
