Brazil Girls

Street Child United Brazil formed The Safe Space football programme after the 2014 World Cup. The Safe Space is situated in Complexo da Penha, one of Rio’s largest favelas. Children in the crowded favelas are put at risk by both the drug trade and state violence. The Safe Space programme allows the children to play risk free in their own uncrowded space.
