What Is Projeto Crescer?
This is no ordinary learning facility. It is a home to many children who live in poverty and haven't had the easiest of lives. The Projeto is their hope; it is their gateway to the possibility of future success. Families that can't afford to give their children a good education are provided with an opportunity to change their lives for the better. The Projeto children learn new things every day, such as Arts, Math, Language, Computer Science and so much more. They are also provided with meals twice a day, as well as a safe place to learn and play.
Wania Howard, the Projeto founder, had the dream to provide others with better education and a chance at happiness her whole life. MORE
This is our kids' reality! On Saturday (May 18, 2019), around 7 pm, there was a drive-by shooting in the Portão neighborhood, located approximately 3 miles from the Lagoa dos Patos community in Lauro de Freitas (State of Bahia, Brazil), where Projeto Crescer has its headquarters. According to the Department of Public Security, four men in a vehicle began firing at a group of people on one of the streets of the neighborhood, making their first victim, a 15-year-old teenager; then headed to the next street and continued shooting. There were 6 fatalities in total, including two teenagers. The targets were supposed to be members of a rival faction, but according to residents the 6 victims were innocent by-standers. MORE
