Touching Thursday: Brazil Edition

I received the packets for three precious kiddos from Brazil. 

Both of the girls attend project BR-417. My little Dafyne attends this project and many other O.Cers sponsor in this project too. BR-417 is located in the Fortaleza area, which is known for it's prostitution of very young girls, sometimes girls even as young as 5 years old. BR-417 is doing amazing work in the lives of the families in this community. 

The little boy attends project BR-422, which is located near Rio de Jinero. This community is located very near the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. It says in the information for BR-422, that 40% of the children enrolled in the project are too young to be enrolled in school. They are a very new project and I'm sure there are so many cute little ones running around the project. Can't you just imagine it? 

Here are the kids needing sponsors: 


This sweet girl is Mariana. She is 8 years old. Her birthday is April 8th. Mariana lives with her grandfather, her mother, and 1 sibling. Her grandfather is sometimes employed as a laborer and her mother maintains the home. Mariana is responsible for running errands. Playing house, playing with dolls, and running are Mariana's favorite activities. In primary school her performance is average and she also regularly attends church activities. 


This is Emily. She just turned 5 years old on September 27th. She makes her home with her father, mother, and 1 sibling. Her father is employed as a laborer and her mother maintains the home. Emily helps out at home by running errands. As part of Compassion's ministry, Emily participates in Bible class. She is in kindergarten and has average performance. Singing, art, and playing with dolls are her favorite activities. 


Meet Caio. He is 5 years old. His birthday is March 18th. Caio lives with his father and mother and appears to be an only child. His father is unemployed and his mother works as a laborer. Caio helps his family by caring for animals, running errands, and cleaning. Busy boy! For fun, Caio enjoys soccer, playing with cars, and swimming. He attends church activities and Vacation Bible School regularly. He is also in kindergarten and has average performance. 

If you are interested in sponsoring any of these children, please let me know!


  1. I hope these kids are sponsored soon!!! Emily is about the same age as our little girls!! And Ciao is so cute!! Mariana really stands out to me with her mom and grandfather.

    1. I am absolutely enamored by Caio. I just love his name. I looked up how to pronounce it and now I want to keep saying it over and over again. "Ki-oh, Ki-oh." Love! He's so so cute.
