- #SDG2: Zero Hunger - Countdown to Rio 2016! (português abaixo) "My profession? I am a barber, photographer, cultural producer and father too. I do everything that brings benefit to the community, regardless of who is getting help. Our place has a lot to offer and, sometimes, young people are lost between these choices. The family base is the biggest difficulty here: young people do not have to put money in the house, but to study, make a qualifying course. I see our children and feel I can not leave them behind, I need to guide them to become good people. Almost no one stopped to hear the children; Most orders and expect them to obey. I made sure of listen them." – Key Tetra, 38 years old #ODS2: Fome Zero - Contagem regressiva para Rio 09 dias! "Minha profissão? Sou barbeiro, fotógrafo, produtor cultural e pai também. Faço tudo que traz benefício para a comunidade, independentemente de quem está recebendo ajuda. Nosso lugar tem muita coisa a oferecer e, às vezes, os jovens ficam perdidos no meio dessas escolhas. A base familiar é a maior dificuldade daqui: os jovens não têm que colocar dinheiro dentro de casa, mas estudar, fazer um curso de qualificação. Vejo as nossas crianças e sinto que não posso deixá-las para trás, preciso orientá-las para que se tornem pessoas do bem. Quase ninguém para e ouve as crianças; a maioria manda e espera que elas obedeçam. Eu faço questão de ouvir o que elas têm a dizer" – Key Tetra, 38 anos #humansofrio #humansofmyworld #rio2016 #cantagalo PNUD Brasil United Nations Development Programme - UNDP UNDP in Latin America and the Caribbean SDG Action Campaign 3 hours ago
- #SDG3: GOOD HEALTH AND WELL-BEING - 07 days to Rio 2016! (português abaixo) "I started surfing yet when I was a child, with my brother. We had no money to buy a surfboard, so we would go to the beach and wait for the surfers to lose their surfboards to the waves. When this happened, we would run to the board and we caught a wave before they follow us. The surf at that time was sport for elite, so we suffered two types of bias: were the 'hill playboys' and 'Asphalt vagabonds'. After a while, we could bring the sport to the community, we shared borrowed boards and with much effort we created the Favela Surf Clube. The sport gave me just everything, and I understood that I could use it to transform the lives of others as well. The coolest thing is to see how the surf integrates people from different places and social classes: the sea is a democratic space." – Alexandre da Silva, "Pretão", 44 years old ---- #ODS3: SAÚDE E BEM-ESTAR - 07 dias para as Olimpíadas! "Comecei a surfar ainda pequeno, com meu irmão. Não tínhamos dinheiro para comprar uma prancha, então íamos para a praia e ficávamos esperando os surfistas perderem as deles para as ondas. Quando isso acontecia, corríamos para a prancha e pegávamos uma onda antes que eles fossem atrás da gente. O surf, na época, era um esporte elitizado, então sofríamos dois tipos de preconceito: éramos os ‘playboys do morro’ e os ‘vagabundos do asfalto’. Depois de um tempo, conseguimos levar o esporte para a comunidade, dividíamos pranchas emprestadas e com muito esforço criamos o Favela Surf Clube. O esporte me deu simplesmente tudo, e eu entendi que poderia usá-lo para transformar a vida de outras pessoas também. O mais legal de é ver o quanto o surf integra pessoas de diferentes lugares e classes sociais: o mar é um espaço democrático." – Alexandre da Silva, "Pretão", 44 anos #humansofrio #humansofmyworld #rio2016 #cantagalo #Favelasurfclube Favela Surf Club PNUD Brasil United Nations Development Programme - UNDP UNDP in Latin America and the Caribbean United Nations Office on Sport for Development and Peace (UNOSDP) ONU Brasil SDG Action Campaign Surfing 6 hours ago
