Rio Bonito

Rio Bonito is one of the biggest cities in the world.  Many live in Favelas which have limited, if any, sanitation, safety and security.  The Favelas face extreme challenges: violence, crime, malnourished children, and child abuse.  Few have an opportunity to get an education and most can’t read or write.  With these odds, as you can imagine, very few children/teens are able to break the poverty cycle.  Funding support from Lixar, Lixar teams and friends, will help children at risk through the Child Abandonment Prevention Program in Sao Paulo.

Kouloun, Mali, Africa

Kouloun is located in Mali, Africa.  The country borders on Senegal, Mauretania, Algeria and Guinea to name a few.  The population faces reoccurring droughts and persistent poverty.  The harshness of the land causes it to be one of the poorest countries in Africa.  51% live on less than $1 a day.

Only 26% can read and write and very few receive primary school education.  In Mali, over 695,000 are orphaned.  1 in 3 will suffer stunting due to malnutrition.  Without continued education awareness programs, most girls will undergo female genial mutilation.  And, regardless of gender, an alarming number of children will face human trafficing.
