Brazil is the world's fifth-largest country by area and the fifth most populous. Despite its vast size, almost the entire population lives in a 200-mile-wide zone bordering the Atlantic Ocean. Nearly half the country is taken up by the Amazon basin, a huge network of rivers and jungles.
Most Brazilians are of Portuguese or mixed European and African or Indigenous descent. Brazil was formerly a colony of Portugal, and many Africans were brought to Brazil as slaves. Brazil is widely known for its samba music, dance and vibrant celebrations like Carnaval. Portuguese is the national language, and most people practise Roman Catholicism.
Originally inhabited by Indigenous peoples, Brazil was claimed by Portugal as a colony in 1500. Portuguese rule lasted until 1822 when the colony declared its independence and established an independent monarchy. The monarchy ruled until 1889 when Brazil became a republic. A series of military coups disrupted civil liberties until 1979 when Brazil began to shift more toward democratic norms. Regular popular elections finally resumed in 1989. Brazil has gone through periods of alternating expansion and recession since the 1990s, often provoking protests over government policies and political corruption.
Compassion’s ministry is focused on what we call holistic child development. This means developing children in all the different aspects of their lives—their minds, bodies and relationships—while giving them the opportunity to hear about and experience the love of Jesus from caring local church staff and volunteers.
Absolutely not! We encourage children and families of all faiths and backgrounds to register in our programs and would never require or coerce anyone to convert to Christianity.Learn More
Today, children around the world are discovering that poverty doesn’t have to be their future. Help one more do the same by sponsoring with Compassion!
