Join TeamCAFOD for the Royal Parks Half Marathon 2023 to support those living in poverty around the world.

You will be helping people like Maria:

Maria lives on the outskirts of a small town in north eastern Brazil. As a single mother, she has often struggled to make ends meet. Several years ago, along with 12 other women from her community, Maria turned a small patch of disused dumping ground into a profitable vegetable garden.

The state of Piau (where Maria lives) in north east Brazil is one of the poorest regions in the country. Piau is very sunny which means the state has massive potential for solar energy production. However, because of the high costs involved, rural communities often have limited access to this energy.

Our partner Caritas Brazil are promoting a new energy system that will ensure sustainable energy for poor communities which doesn't harm the environment.

We have worked with Caritas Brazil and the New Energy Policy for Brazil Coalition, to install solar panels in six communities. The project now supports 186 families who generate energy for their daily needs.
