bff - best friends forever, in Brazil
In Brazil, Star of Hope works primarily with pre-schools in the slums. The desired outcome of this work is that the children will acquire the preschool skills they need to enter the primary school. It is also important to give them a good start in life and prevent them from becoming street children. Of Brazil's large population, some say 200,000 children live on the street while others say have of all children live on the street. Who knows for sure in any case it seems millions of them are street children.
