La Vida has been supporting projects in Brazil since 2006

La Vida’s first project, The Ponseti Project,  was in Brazil.

Brazil is one of the world’s largest economies, but the country suffers with poverty and inequality, which have deteriorated in recent years due to the economic crisis, pushing around an additional 2.5m people below the poverty line.

We provided windows for the school classrooms to keep out the mosquitos.

SIAO Orphanage

The plantation project will provide a regular income for the orphanage, improving housing facilities, medical and educational support for the children.
Steven' s Family


Stephen Joseph De La Cruz is albino. He has skin problems and very acute short-sightedness which upsets his studies. He has four brothers and his sister who suffers from the same conditions has had no support at a local school.

His parents cannot afford to send him and his sister to a school that would take into account his special needs.

A monthly donation of £20 over a year sponsors a child like Stephen to attend school.
