We have just received a large donation from local French school Lycée Molière!
In November the children at the school did a fun-run at the American school in Rio's Gávea neighbourhood, to raise money for Favela Brass and the NGO Onda Solidaria. In the end they raised R$3,308.50 for each project, and we were invited to receive the cheques at the school on Thursday.
We are very grateful to the children, parents and teachers of the Lycée for this kind and generous act. The Lycée is situated right at the entrance to our favela, and it was great to discover that this desire to help and integrate with our children exists.
We too really want to get to know and integrate more with our neighbours, and on Thursday we had a very interesting conversation around the possibilities of future partnerships between the Lycée and Favela Brass - watch this space!
