On Saturday 15th November, CBC held a family lunch, providing a rare opportunity for families living in the slums to sit down together, enjoy some family entertainment and a delicious meal. The event was well attended and students proudly presented dance, music, poems and photos of their lives at the project.
On the 15th November CBC will hold it’s second annual family lunch event, designed to bring families together for fellowship and teaching. Children in the slums have little opportunity to even sit down for a meal at a table with their parents or guardians. You can sponsor a family for $35.
Congratulations to all our dedicated and brilliant teachers who make CBC shine and bring life, hope and opportunity to children everyday!
We are desperate need of funds to buy new computers. These are the only computers that children in the slums have access to and right now we only have 7 working for a group of 250 students. Please click on DONATE to make a gift towards this urgent project
After an emotional World Cup for Brazilians, CBC students are back to school and have quickly recovered from the disappointment of 4th place. Most kids were more than happy to get back to the project since during the vacation there is no safe open space in which to play.

There is not a single student absent from class this week because CBC is hosting a soccer championship which has everybody talking. In the classroom the kids have been learning about the important relationship between talent on the pitch and character. They’ve been studying the lives of famous soccer players in Brazil and around the world, as well as the history of the game.
