Pedra Viva is a day program for disadvantaged children living in the favelas (slums) in Belo Horizonte Brazil. Prostitution, violence and drug use are a part of everyday life. Almost 1 in 4 children in Brazil are victims of school dropout. To encourage children to remain in school they are provided access to specialist classes and services including dance, music, IT, tutoring and social workers in a safe and nurturing environment.
