Where we work in Brazil

Map Brazil 2014 EN

Our work is focused in the Northeast - the neediest region of the country - where the child mortality rate is 50% higher than the national average, income almost 40% lower and illiteracy rates more than twice as high.

Plan runs programmes in approximately 150 communities in Maranhão, Pernambuco, Bahia, Piauí and Rio Grande do Norte, besides the state of São Paulo in the Southeast.

We conduct national campaigns for the promotion and defense of children's rights. And now to help build relationships, fundraising and communicate our work,  we are with an office in São Paulo.
