Mais Caminhos, BRAZIL

.

The view from Cantagalo-Pavão-Pavãozinho favela contrasts with the lifestyle of its inhabitants. A neighbour to both prestigious Ipanema and Copacabana, this favela shares in the beauty of their landscapes but not the comfort of their homes and many other privileges. Mais Caminhos offers ambitious children from this community complementary education, allowing them to dream of a great future not constrained by their present situation. Children explore the old traditions of Brazil, such as the dances Indio, Carimbó e Forró - a heritage left by the ethnic diversity of the people who flocked to the country.
