By Sharda ten Hove on 10 July 2014

Action for Brazil's Children is a UK Charity Organization supporting grass root community projects (like dance, art, football) to transform the lives of the most vulnerable children and young people in Brazil.

Every 4 minutes a child in Brazil is a victim of human rights abuse, this can be domestic violence, sex violence or gang violence.
Twenty four children and teenagers are murdered every day.

Through awareness and funding, ABC supports local organizations to take the lead in overcoming the problems of extreme poverty, abuse and lack of opportunity that affect so many children across Brazil.

ABC initially started as a soup kitchen but has since supported 22 projects and reached out to over 18,000 children and their families.
