According to the Brazilian government, out of the 59.5 million children and teenagers in Brazil, almost half of them (45.9%) live in extremely poor conditions where they find themselves vulnerable to great risk.
Boys tend to join the drug gangs where their lives become in danger either due to the drugs or rival gangs. The girls tend to find themselves in even more vulnerable situations as many are forced into selling their bodies for money.
UNICEF estimates that there are around 500,000 children involved in the sex industry in Brazil with another inestimable number suffering ‘hidden’ systematic abuse within the home. In some cases the child’s own family has been found encouraging them to sell their body or has actively ‘touted’ the child for sex.
The problem is particularly bad in the North East of Brazil which is quickly becoming the new ‘Sex Capital’ of the world since the 2001 Asian Tsunami.
A government study amongst some of the girls forced into prostitution found that the average age of their first sexual encounter was just 10 years old.
We run a safe house which is home to a maximum of 10 girls at any one time. If a girl is being abused or exploited then it is vital that they are taken out of that environment. The ReVive house provides a safe place for the girl to live and a chance to get back into education, receive the necessary help she needs, learn new things and begin to restore her life and renew her hope for the future.

Our Values

  • We respect all human beings equally, regardless of race, gender, age, or social status
  • We respect local culture; we work to enhance it, not to change it
  • We work selfless and put all of our efforts into helping others
  • We operate with transparency, integrity, and honesty

Our Mission

Fairshare International provides funding and support for projects that provide food, shelter, protection from violence and abuse, health education, schooling and professional training or studies for children in communities in areas of Brazil where these basics that we take for granted seem impossible to achieve without outside help. In our selection of projects to be funded, we find sustainability very important. Our mission is “rather than give the hungry man a fish, teach him how to fish”. In other words, we want to help people help themselves.
