Mão Amiga Brazil

Population: 204,259,812
Percent Below Poverty Line: 21.4%

Since 2008 Brazil has fought for a stable economy, and has achieved this through debt reduction programs. Although the country is performing well, there are still pockets of poverty. 21.4% of the population lives under the poverty line. Mão Amiga Brazil supports a population in dire need of financial resources that is located in the outskirts of Itapecerica da Serra, bordering the outskirts of São Paulo and Embu-Guaçu. It is located in the Jardim Santa Júlia district, surrounded by a region in need of our help, due to many issues, such as poverty, violence and drug abuse.

Mão Amiga Brazil opened its doors in 2006 with 48 pre school children in a remote village far from the metropolitan area of San Paul. This town, Jardin Santa Julia, with 20,000 residents has been plagued through the years with unemployment, violence, poverty and illiteracy.

The goal of Mão Amiga Brazil transcends that of traditional academics. Administrators and educators of the school have geared their program to address the whole needs of the impoverished child. From attention issues to perseverance, discipline, learning deficits and spirituality, the objective is to raise impoverished children out of the confines of generational poverty, allowing them the ability to become self-sufficient and use the gifts God gave them.

Fourteen needy children have received scholarships this fall to attend our Mao Amiga School in Brazil. Thanks to Dr. Nicholas Perricone, a generous and loyal donor, these children are given a significant chance for success through a formative Catholic education. Dr. Perricone has had a heart for the children of Brazil for many years. He has demonstrated his support by funding scholarships to allow these children a chance at a formative Catholic education, and families the opportunity to lift themselves out of generational poverty.
