- Last year, we helped over 14,000 of the poorest and most vulnerable people in Brazil.
Brazil is one of the world's most unequal countries. We’re based in Paraiba, where half the population lives below the poverty line, and many people are denied even their basic rights, such as to education or health care.
Working with local partners, we focus on promoting and defending child rights and helping people earn a decent living. The overall goal of our work is ‘improved quality of life' for vulnerable communities, women, children and youth from the northeast region of Brazil. This includes access to good basic services; respect for rights, especially child, youth and women’s rights; women’s economic autonomy, improved food security and sustainable livelihoods; reduced vulnerability of urban and rural communities; and improved skills for partner organisations and target groups.
Concern Universal Brazil blogs on human rights and sustainable development, including child rights and youth work (blogs in Portuguese).View Brazil contact information
