Soa Paulo, Brazil:
The project entails the purchase of an existing building near the Vila Prudente slums to allow the Spiritans to minister to the social and pastoral needs of the youth in the favelas. Lack of family structure, positive role models and educational opportunities lead many youth into a life of crime. A permanent, physical presence would provide continuity and hope to those seeking to reverse this destructive cycle. For more information contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
