Abstract

The resourcefulness and resilience that characterise homegrown movements in Brazilian favelas are increasingly documented and acknowledged. In this post, Zaneta Denny contributes to this discussion by presenting the initiatives of Redes de Desenvolvimento da Maré, a favela-based NGO. Despite the organisation’s manifold achievements, coupled with Brazil’s economic growth, there is still a lot to be done to increase the number and quality of opportunities for residents, she suggests.
