Grant Recipient: Community in Action

Community in Action was founded in 2004 with the aim of exacting long-term change sustainably from the ground up in Rio de Jainero’s largest favela (shanty town) — today, they support several projects across seven favelas focusing on areas ranging from computer training to social outreach programs to urban gardening.

Donations support initiatives in education, youth development, environmental projects, women’s empowerment, youth programming and sports, and manual labor support.
