Adopt a Child at Julio Otoni and Latest Updates from the Project

See the Project Update Document below for what's been happening over the last few months at the Julio Otoni Community.

Please Help! The project has launched an important new initiative "Adote uma Crianca /Adopt a Child" to try and cover the running costs of the project which are currently not being met. For each child participating in the project it costs R$70 per month. For this amount (approx US$31 / £23 per month) you can "Adopt a child" guaranteeing their participation in the project and offering them alternatives to getting involved in the drug and gang culture which is the norm.

There are currently 57 children in the project, 29 who have been adopted and 28 needing adoption.

Please see the site and project update below for more information.
