Expanding our Vision.
We realized that by implementing a comprehensive educational curriculum to help families, in addition to material supplies, our impact could change generations in Brazil and the U.S. We also included in our educational efforts the Brazilian families living in Massachusetts who often have limited access to information in their native language, Portuguese. We believe that all families deserve to learn how to develop and incorporate essential nurturing skills in their daily routines and children have the right to develop and grow their emotional intelligence skills.
Around 39 million people live below the poverty line in Brazil. Thirty-eight percent of them live with less than $22 per month. These parents are less emotionally responsive due to many stresses they face in order to provide the basics for their families, and as a result of living in more violent communities. Consequently, children in these families struggle to learn in school. They have limitations in their ability to cope with stress and may develop depression. Share Love Foundation addresses the need for social-emotional education, provides help with food, and daily meals for 80 students living in one of the poorest region of Brazil, Vale do Jequitinhonha.
