Post-MDG-child-consultations---Brazil

Share this Report

This report presents the findings from research carried out in Brazil as part of a worldwide consultation involving seven countries with over 600 children. In Brazil, the research was carried out with nine focus groups of children and adolescents who currently live on the streets or are at high risk of losing parental care.

The purpose of this research is to give these children, whose current status is considered extremely precarious, a voice with a view to raising the bar on priorities for the post-Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) agenda. Before the final deadline for the evaluation of the achievements of these goals, organisations throughout the world are undertaking consultations with a view to proposing new themes for the post-MDGs agenda. In Brazil these consultations were carried out by the non-governmental organisations Associação Brasileira Terra dos Homens (ABTH) and Organização de Direitos Humanos Projeto Legal who have worked with their partners to bring children and adolescents together to participate in this research.

The research started on 29 November 2012, with a break due to the end of year holidays, and was completed in March 2013. Nine groups were formed in Brazil and a total of 71 children and adolescents took part.
