In the city of Rio de Janeiro, there are 763 slums housing roughly one fourth of the city's population with several children living below the poverty line. Sonhar Acordado tries to impact 13 of those communities by performing regular activities with groups of children .Also, there are poor children, sick and going through long periods of hospitalization and treatment for chronic diseases in public hospitals without interaction with other children/people.


With more them 2000 children assisted by our three projects, we will train at least another 3000 volunteers that will spend time with children, helping them experience core values through several activities implemented during one or more days during the year. We also perform activities in hospitals with them during treatment, aiming to bring joy to their lives in those difficult moments.

Long-Term Impact

We hope that, through the transmission of values and continuous contact, we can transform the reality and the daily life of these children. Through the examples of volunteers, affection, friendship, hope, and other human values they'll be able to see the world in a different way, with more dignity and to grow up learning to also help others. With non-formal learning actitivities and the partnership of our volunteers, we could help those kids to see a different world than that they are used to.
