Our students are developing well, thanks to 5 fantastic Brazilian teachers who do an amazing job. We achieved this without any subsidy from the Dutch or the Brazilian government.

We pay the salaries of the teachers only with help of friends and supporters from Europe and the U.S. But this success is no guarantee for the future. Without a fixed financial basis, we have a precarious certainty of existence. However, this certitude is necessary to keep our great teachers connected to Estrela.

This is why we start the “Estrela Forever" campaign, asking – to everyone who also believes good education is a basic condition for progress – to transfer an annual fixed amount of €10 or more to Estrela da Favela.

If you participate and perhaps also know a number of friends and acquaintances who are interested in this charity, u enable us to provide a solid financial foundation to keep our teachers connected to Estrela. In this way Estrela can continue her good work for many years to come and prepare thousands of children for a normal working life without having to end up in misery, crime or prostitution.

More information about Estrela for Ever will follow soon.
