Presença de Sabores, Miguel Couto
A project undertaken with the partnership of Monaco Red Cross
To give better life chances to ex-street kids of favelas
A Collaboration with Monaco Red Cross
At the beginning of 2011, in collaboration with Casa do Menor and Monaco Red Cross International Actions, the «Presença de Sabores» project was created in the favela of Miguel Couto, Rio de Janeiro.
An existing property has been fully adapted and equipped to run as a hotel and catering training school.
This social project gives former street kids a qualified vocation enabling these young adults to gain employment in the catering industry as kitchen assistants, waiters and barmen.
Partnerships have been formed with local professionals, restaurants and hotels to encourage placements.
