There are an estimated 14,000 people living in the streets and shelters of Sao Paulo, Brazil's largest city and economic capital.
One man, who works the streets as a shoe-shiner, has decided to take up residence in a tree beside one of Sao Paulo's busiest roads.
It is his way of trying to stay clear of the dangers of living without a home.
