We work with 15 partners across Brazil. Some of our recent successes include:
Christian Aid partner MST (Landless Workers’ Movement) mobilises landless people in the struggle for land and dignity.
Working across Brazil, MST promotes agricultural production through over 400 cooperatives and campaigns for rural schools, health services, agro-ecological policies, roads and access to inclusive markets. It has helped 350,000 families secure land and a better life.
The Pro-Indigenous Commission of São Paulo (CPI) works with indigenous and quilombola communities, especially in the Amazon and Atlantic rainforests.
They have supported quilombola groups to win rights to the lands they have lived on for generations, defend their land from deforestation and degradation, and uphold their cultural rights.
Gaspar Garcia works with São Paulo’s most vulnerable citizens to ensure they know their rights and can protect them.
In 2012, supported by Christian Aid and the European Union, Gaspar Garcia helped the city’s street vendors to win a landmark case defending their right to work.
Koinonia, meaning fellowship, is a national ecumenical organisation and a fellow member of ACT Alliance. It carries out social and pastoral work on theology, ecumenism, interfaith dialogue, gender equality, HIV and Afro-Brazilian rights.
SADD (Anglican Service on Diaconia and Development) is a service of the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil advocating for the rights of vulnerable communities, mainly women affected by gender-based violence.
