Within Xerem, many families live in conditions of extreme poverty.

Primary and Secondary education are also of a very lower quality due to a lack of resources and teachers, but also a lack of support and development of the local infrastructure including transport routes and economic opportunities. Many of the families and children have also experienced violence, gang-related or otherwise.

Globally, there are significant gaps in health and education between rural and urban settings.

Casa Do Caminho gives the opportunity for children coming from these disadvantaged and troubled backgrounds to be part of a community that fosters health and education.

Run and operated by locals with local volunteers, we are able to provide educational support in the key areas of the local curriculum including math, Portuguese, science, geography, history and extracurricular areas including sport, health art, computer literacy and more.
