Young film makers advocate healthy lifestyles for adolescents
Young people from Brazil are producing videos to encourage their peers to improve their physical and mental wellbeing.
Plan International has been working in Brazil since 1997 to promote children’s rights and gender equality.
We operate in the states of Maranhão, Piauí, Bahia and São Paulo to create communities that are free from violence where girls and boys have equal opportunities.
Brazil is a country marked by deep social, economic and political inequalities. For instance, 33 million people are food insecure, Brazil has the fifth highest number of child brides in the world and 10% of young people dropped out of school during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The lack of representation of women in politics is also an issue. Women occupy just 17.7% of seats in the Chamber of Deputies and 12.3% in the Federal Senate.
As a result we’re supporting girls to get an education in safe communities where they have equal opportunities.
Our work ensures girls are able to lead, learn, decide and thrive:
