Challenge

The economic impact of Covid-19 aggravates hunger reaching more than 19 million people in 2020. In 2021, pools show that more than 100 million people depend on donations to have access to food and clean water while the inflation skyrockets. In January this year, 27 million people in Brazil face hunger every single day.

Solution

The Plano de Acao Familiar (PAF - Family Action Plan) is the social technology created by Dara Institute that consists of the participative integrated setting of goals and actions in the areas of health, housing, income, citizenship, and education aiming at helping socially vulnerable families to develop and become independent. Through PAF, the food basket is followed by nutritional guidance, donation of medicines, medical equipment, and special milks prescribed by the medical staff at the partn

Long-Term Impact

According to a study carried out by Georgetown University, the income of the families has almost doubled and hospital readmissions fallen by 86% three to five years after they had concluded their Plano de Acao Familiar (PAF - Family Action Plan). 28% of these families owned their home at the beginning of the program. This number rose to 50% three to five years after they had concluded their program.
