At the end of 2015 I spent a few months in Itiruçu, Bahia (Brazil) on behalf of an Italian NGO that has been dealing for years with the education of children belonging to needy families.
The greatest risk for these children is to fall into the traps of drugs, prostitution and child labor. Families often fail to give the support needed, as they are victims themselves of the same cultural context.
The project culminated in an exhibition in the city of Pescara (Italy) and the prints of the images were put up for sale in order to finance the activities of the school.
The following series of images is meant to be a brief testimony of this experience.
