Welcome

Task Brasil Inc. is a US non-profit organisation set up to support Task Brasil in the UK with its projects for children and teenagers at risk and from the streets in Brazil.

Task Brasil started running residential care for street children and young people in 1998 after receiving a very generous donation from Jimmy Page, the Led Zeppelin rock icon, who witnessed first hand the deprivation of the children and troubles in the favelas whilst playing in Rio de Janeiro. The money donated was used toward buying a house on a plot of land in Santa Teresa, a district of Rio de Janeiro. ‘Casa Jimmy’ has provided a safe and happy home for 500 young children and pregnant teenage girls who were either living on the streets, or leading lives of great deprivation and vulnerability.

In addition to Casa Jimmy, over the years, Task Brasil has run a number of houses for Street Children, teenage boys, teenage girls and their babies.

Task Brasil now operates socio-educational programmes for the disadvantaged or at risk youth in Rio as well as supporting the needs of ex-residents so that they have the opportunity to thrive in life and are able to live in harmony with their family and community away from the streets.
