As we look forward to the football World Cup this summer, we take time to catch up with our partners in Brazil and hearing about their preparations.
Watch this film and be inspired by Maristely, a young leader in São Paulo, Brazil.
Maristely (Mari) is 18, she lives with her grandmother and we’ve known her now for a couple of years through our Connect2: Brazil partnership. She is an active member of her community, a member of the youth group at St Matthew the Apostle.
Like many people her age, her dream is to go to university. Two years ago, she told us:
“I want to help people – people my age, younger kids and older people. I want to do a job where others benefit from my skills. I’d really like to be part of a project or a movement where I can help not just myself, but other people as well.”
CAFOD passionately believes in young people who make a difference in their communities and around the world.
