Our Mission Access works to give innovative education to the youth impacted by violence in the most vulnerable contexts. Our headquarters, located on the outskirts of São Paulo, is a haven where we host projects that emphasize the importance of education, violence prevention and peace building.
What We Do
Gang-led drug trafficking is common in Brazil's biggest cities, and understanding this culture of violence can be a challenge. A research-based and unbiased view of the problem is needed in order to find a solution. ACCESS Brazil implements education projects in Science and Technology in these under-served communities and helps raise funds for projects running in the most vulnerable favelas of the Sao Paulo. We collaborate with local organizations, focusing strongly on education and youth empowerment. By providing a stronger support system, we aim to decrease violence and crime rates within these communities.
