    Brazil has 15 of the 50 most violent cities in the World. The international drug trade and its passage through Brazil has led to a crack epidemic. Many children on the street are addicted and have dropped out of school. Many more have suffered abuse and violence. They spend days without sleeping, eating or washing, caught up in crime, prostitution and trafficking.

    Action for Brazil's Children Trust funds local community projects that help protect and care for street children and vulnerable young people. ABC Trust’s work is both preventative: supporting projects that stop children from reaching the streets through child care facilities and educational opportunities, and responsive: getting children off the street and providing support, health care, counselling and learning.
