Favela Phoenix was recently robbed for the 10th time at our location which belongs to the local church. All our materials for the children's classes were taken and over time we have lost a lot of supplies through theft.
We have finally grown tired of using the current location as it is so insecure. The community of Rocinha rallied in our support and they have helped us to find and give us a fantastic new location. An entire building with 3 large rooms! And much more importantly, it is a very secure location!
We are very pleased to be moving to this new building, the only thing is, we need a bit of help refurbishing it. One room needs some tiling done and a hole in the wall repaired whilst we also need to replace a lot of children materials that were stolen including pens, pencils, coloured pencils, glues, scissors and paper. The plan is to have the new place ready for the new term at the school which starts on Monday 9th January.
Thank you for your support!
