BEFORE – Helena lived in Breus, a poor town of Pernambuco, in a thatched house with dirt floor and stick beds. Helena remembers the days of much difficulty, when she used to offer water with sugar to ease the hunger of her 11 children: “There were days I did not eat anything.”
AFTER – Today, Helena dedicates herself to activities in the Amigos do Bem villages, her husband works in the cashew plantation; her young sons and daughters work in the manufacture of nuts; and her small children attend our Transformation Centers.
