2019 will be Mission Direct’s 12th and final year working with Open Hands in Campo Largo, building transitional homes to help move families out of the favela and into a home of their own in a safer, more secure environment.
During our 12 years in Campo Largo working with Open Hands, 28 houses have been built across three sites, with a further two almost finished and two final homes to be built this year.
Come and help bring a close to the building aspect of the current project, we know they would LOVE to see you again!
These homes have - and will continue to - help families move out of the favelas and transition to a home of their own for a brighter future.
Help us finish this campaign with a big impact!
You'll also visit other community-led projects, such as Lar Feliz – A home for vulnerable children that aims to keep siblings together and CEIFAR- a men’s residential addiction treatment centre.
For some down-time, you’ll visit Cananeia: Take a boat trip through the world-famous mangroves and witness some incredible wildlife. Walk through the Atlantic Forest to a beautiful waterfall and swim in the natural pool, before venturing on to beautiful beaches.
The teams in Brazil Campo Largo have been doing an incredible job. Here are a few of the most recent stories and stats from the projects...
