£4,034raised of £4,000 target by 26 supporters

    Weʼve raised £4,034 to : Help us raise £4,000 by 15th December to reconstruct Terra Fértil, an orphanage that looks after 2,620 children in Goiania, Brazil.

    Funded on Thursday, 22nd December 2016

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Hi everybody, I am Rubia Carla, Director of Terra Fertil, a Not-for-Profit Organisation based in the city of Goiana, Brazil.

    Terra Fertil plays an important role in supporting children who are impacted by domestic violence, prostitution and drug trafficking.

    We act as both an orphanage and a day care centre providing food, clothing and schooling for over 2600 children aged from 2 years upwards. We have 22 units within the orphanage which are used as classrooms. These are used to give the children a safe environment, education, a chance for the future, as well as hope and belief in themselves.

    But at the moment we're facing a BIG CHALLENGE:

    Due to recent changes in government regulations, we have been forced to increase the size of the classrooms and reconstruct the units (!), money we cannot afford, which is why we are asking for your help.

    We have already raised enough money to rebuild 7 of the 22 units and need a further £4,000 to finish before the 15th December, when the government will decide whether we can continue to operate.

    Here's the link to the video we put together a week ago:


    We'd be so grateful if you became part of this project! Anything you can donate, however small, will give many children a better future not just for this Xmas but for many Xmases to come.

    Love and Thanks,

    Rubia, Nectaria and the children at Terra Fértil x

      Thank you everyone for your kindness and generosity, for sharing this cause and for being part of it! :) Terra Fertil was on the Brazilian TV last night, the gates closed and the children wandering around the building. On top of that, the teachers were confessing that they hadn't been paid in 7 months!... If a bunch of us donated as little as £2 we could save this sanctuary! I'm sending love and gratitude for all your support... Rubia and Nectaria xxx
