Sustainable Masterplan, Salvador, Brazil


Bahia is one of the poorest states in Brazil and has a huge problem of poverty amongst children who are forced in to a life on the street. Our partner ‘Children of Bahia’ have been working in the area since 2005 and support a number of small operations aimed at community involvement and education. 

Building Trust agreed to draw up a master plan for the Caji district working with the government family relocation plan from the favella. This will be done in close consultation with the community incorporating local aspirations with an over all sustainable strategy. From this a programme of projects have been highlighted and have allowed the community to seek agreement and help with potential funding campaigns.
