Brasilia, Brazil, South America

The Diocese of Brasilia, Brazil, has had a long-standing relationship with our diocese.  One of the major challenges in Brasilia is the educational needs of children from this large and very poor community.  Children there typically attend school only two-three hours a day, which impairs the development of an education that could help lift them out of poverty.  This unstructured after-school time, often involving a lack of parental or guardian supervision, can also create situations where children are tempted into trouble.

The Diocese of Brasilia, with our help and support, has established an after-school program for the continued care and development of these children.  To learn more about this program and how you can help or contribute, contact Global Missions Commission Chair the Rev. Jeff Bower at
