    Story

    After living and working in the favelas of Brazil, my friends and I have set up The Favela Foundation that will work collaboratively with grassroots organisations in Brazil to leave a sustainable legacy, and encourage progress and positive change in these challenging environments.

    All of the founding trustees lived and worked in Rocinha, and have each pledged to fundraise over the next 12 months to help launch The Favela Foundation.

    First up, Trustee, Kanav, who is taking part in not one, but TWO triathlon's this June.

    "In Rocinha I encountered people of all ages with a passion and drive to continue learning new skills and challenge themselves on a daily basis. It was infectious. It showed me that adding new skills and experiences has been important to my life to date and its something that I never want to stop. The opportunity to be in Rocinha placed me in a rare position where I was taught as much as I was able to teach others." - Kanav.

    Kanav is also very talented photographer, and so as a thank you for your support all donations over £20 will receive a limited edition photo from his time in Rocinha.

    £20 - 7" print of Rocinha.
    £50 - A4 size print.
    £100 - 15" print of your choice.
    £500 - Large canvas print of your choice.

    Please forward your donation receipt to info@thefavelafoundation.org along with your full postal address and we will arrange for your image to be sent to you.
