The Brazilian Women's' Group (BWG) is a volunteer-run organization that was started in 1995 by a group of Brazilian immigrant women of various backgrounds and occupations. The women hoped to "make a difference” in the wider Brazilian community, encouraging its members, particularly women, to stand up for their rights in the United States. We promote our goals through community organizing and by empowering community members to speak for themselves regardless of immigration status. The BWG has a specific focus on women, and from its beginning, it has sought to develop female leaders for the Brazilian community. Our overall goal is to empower Brazilian women and strengthen the Brazilian Community.

This project was organized is in collaboration with Cristina Capobianco; its mission was to showcase a group of amazingly talented people to the public and help them regain self-confidence while encouraging the same public to be supportive and to build networks.

The project gave rise to the “Discovering Talents” TV show, which aired two Wednesdays per month on CCTV between 2003 and 2008. The idea for the arose following the success of "Resgatando Talentos," and was conceived as a way to expose those talents to a broader audience and to give them the opportunity to develop their amazing work and career in the USA. The program was made possible by the fantastic cable network In Cambridge. It was produced and promoted by Danuza Aquino and Cristina Capobianco in collaboration with Carl-Fredrik Westin, Sonia Chimentao and Marcio Roberto. Many guests on the show were able to move on to successful careers in Boston or other areas of the United States and Brazil.

Rebecca Cohen in Salvador, Bahia

Rebecca Cohen is a graduate of the college of criminal justice at Northeastern University in Boston. She believes that the key to inspiring hope and positive change in the lives of youth lies in providing life-enriching opportunities on a daily basis. She is committed to helping each child develop tools necessary to build a more positive future.

Rebecca is working as a manager for a pilot project to reach out to kids at risk, already exposed to harsh poverty, violence and drugs in the city of Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. She is sharing her knowledge and experience with the kids and their families, raising hopes and empowering those families to improve their chances for a prosperous and just life.

This is an educational and experiential project focused on violence prevention and life skills training, including development of culture, arts and other resources already available to the community as a way to foster possibilities for them to engage in a career or activity that takes them away from drugs and violence.

Danuza Aquino in Brazil Feeding the Poor

“Conde Mateus” - the name of this project is in honor of my father who dedicates much of his time to help others in need and I am now following his footsteps and bringing more volunteers and collaborators to continue to feed and clothe more than 5000 families in urgent need. As it is with any other social justice or health promoting initiatives, we count on donations from people like you and I who are fortunate to have enough to eat everyday. Any donation is valuable and helps tremendously! Money is a very useful donation, but you can also offer your prayers; support; love; volunteer time to help organize or even participate in the distribution in Brazil.
