Who We Are
Action for Brazil's Children Trust (ABC) is dedicated to helping the most vulnerable children and young people of Brazil.
Every day, Brazilian children are forced to face the violence, hunger and isolation of life on the streets.
Recent figures estimate that over 7 million children live a life on the streets in some way. For many, this means occasional school, petty trading, begging and prostitution, only returning to their homes in the evening. Others have no home at all and must face the dangers of sleeping on the streets; they find themselves increasingly excluded from their own communities with no way back.
ABC Trust supports a variety of locally-run projects across Brazil, from counselling to medical care to film-editing workshops, which give these children a second chance - helping them to transform their lives, and giving them hope for their futures. Over 3000 children and their families are reached every day through projects made possible by ABC supporters' donations.
ABC Trust is a UK-based organisation set up by Jimena Page, as Founding Trustee, and Led Zeppelin legend Jimmy Page, as Founding Patron. They have since been joined by a Board of Trustees and a group of Patrons who lend a hand whenever possible.
Patrons: Jimmy Page, Brian May, Carlos Miele, Juliette Lewis, Fernando Meirelles, Jeremy Irons, Romero Britto, Julian Lloyd Webber, Pele.
