Project: THALITA PROJECT WITH STREET GIRLS IN MACEIO, ALAGOAS, BRAZIL
For the Thalita project, the “Hope and Life” Association aims to re-integrate street girls into their families and to restore their dignity. The association uses a three-pronged approach to working with street girls. They work on the streets where the girls gather in order to gain their trust. They work in the project houses to provide education, social work, psychological and medical support and they work with the girls’ families.
CFCA supports these initiatives by providing a project house where girls can stay to receive therapy, vocational training, and support workshops. The project aims to empower girls and to give them concrete skills that they can use to overcome poverty and the hazards of living and working on the streets.
