According to data from the Olhe para a Fome survey, about 19 million Brazilians faced hunger in the last quarter of 2020. This is the highest level since 2004, in comparison with IBGE surveys.
Acknowledging this humanitarian crisis, Avenues: The World School, represented by the São Paulo, New York and Online campuses and our community of parents and students (Avenues Parent Association), understands that it is necessary to act immediately. As our mission says, "we will share our prosperity with those who need it… in ways that leap the walls of our campuses."
We call on our global community to join together to collect food baskets to support the efforts of the UniãoSP project, a civil society initiative that seeks to combat the social challenges caused by the pandemic of COVID-19.
