History

Estrela da Favela, translating to "Star of the Favela" is an education, sports and life skills initiative.

 

The project was established in 2012 by Dutchman Edwin Roodenburg and Brazilian Edna Silveira. 

Edwin en Edna are dedicated to provide sports and education activities to children between the ages of 4 to 14 in Mangueira.

The goal is to provide these children with better and sustainable opportunities to become resilient, healthy contributors to society.

The teachers at Estrela da Favela instruct over a hundred children, on a daily basis, in subjects such as math, Portuguese, English, geography, history and music.

The children also receive an education in social skills and values.

Results 

Several children have gained access to higher education, and thanks to Estrela da Favela´s efforts, all the girls in their project have been safeguarded from unwanted pregnancies.

 Toe To Heart World´s mission is to establish connections with global initiatives, dedicated to enriching children´s education and overal development. Our objective is to raise awareness, foster collaboration, and promote mutual learning. In 2023, Thomas, the founder of Toe To Heart and Toe to Heart World, embarked on a journey to Brazil, where he encountered the Estrela de Favela project in Rio de Janeiro.

During this visit, he witnessed forsthand the profound impact of EdF. Now, Estrela de Favela seeks greater local support from the Rio de Janeiro community, and Toe to Heart is committed to assisting them in this endeavor.

On 1 June Estrela de Favela is organizing a fundraising dinner in Amsterdam. See info below.

 

Wij organiseren een benefietdiner met een avond vol smakelijke gerechten, gelijkgestemde mensen en een spectaculaire veiling. De verse caipirinha en samba maken dit Braziliaanse feest compleet.

 

Zaterdag 1 juni vanaf 18.00 uur in de Oranjekerk te Amsterdam.

 

Op deze avond zal er een veiling gehouden worden, waar alle opbrengsten direct naar onze stichting gaan.

 

We hebben je / jullie er graag bij!

 

We kunnen je hulp gebruiken

Om van een voortbestaan op lange termijn verzekerd te kunnen zijn zou ik iedereen die tot nu toe geaarzeld heeft Estrela te steunen willen vragen een kleine of iets grotere (maandelijkse) bijdrage op rekening van de Stichting Vrienden van Estrela te doen op
