GOALS THAT MOVES US
Viva Rio came to life as an answer to a wave of violence in 1993. Over these 24 years we have changed significantly, diversified our activities and developed from a movement to a social enterprise, always with the construction of peace as one of our pillars.
Viva Rio is the work of many hands and it builds strength from diversity. Our teams are headed by women and men from different backgrounds, united for social change, rights guaranty and race and gender equality.
We seek to open opportunities and provide basic tools so that people in poor places can have options to achieve financial independence and a better quality of life. Viva Rio offers courses, work techniques training and sports classes as first steps for youth to achieve their freedom.
The favelas and peripheries have a lot to say, but they are not always heard. Viva Rio works to amplify the voices of different territories and minorities, while being itself a conscious voice of the civil society on challenging issues.
