Challenge

There are families trying to survive on as little as US$47 per month which brings the worst poverty scenario in the last 10 years with 13% of the 25 mil residents of that small town living below the poverty line. The challenge is to change the perspective of people who beg for food through a simple and agile action so that they feel able to move on with new goals and dreams for their lives.

Solution

Teams of volunteers work to serve 150 registered families with at least 1 essential food basket per month, and 300 families, regardless of their registration process, 4 times a year when demand increase is typical. Besides the material aid, these families receive orientation about the need to go to school and basic health and hygiene care through conversations during the registration and follow-up visits of families in need.

Long-Term Impact

This project has 90 years of history, 20 less than the town itself, which allows for an understanding on the improvement of assisted people's income. Some families, especially those with disabled and sick members, will always need help, and others will break the cycle of poverty when moving to rural areas or when their children get older enough to work. The up-to-date register of those families shows that at least 200 adults can manage to become independent of food support after 5 to 10 years.
