When Flavia’s little house of 30 sq meters was described as a kindergarten (creche in Portuguese), we just couldn’t believe it.
There were 18 kids from 1 to 10 years old that took turns to sit on a little pink Barbie chair that was brought there from us…
To get to her little creche, we had to go through very narrow little roads and go up 251 steep steps in one of the poorest and most dangerous areas of Rocinha.
Flavia’s creche, that is her house, is composed of 4 rooms: 2 bedrooms, 1 living room, 1 kitchen and 1 bathroom. All the spaces are used by the kids and are very small.
Temakinho will bear all of the monthly costs for the food, hygienic materials and school materials, allowing Flavia to invest in refurbishing her terrace, to cover it in order to create another space just for the children.
