Task Brasil Trust is a UK registered charity established in 1992. Under the supervision of its small London office, Task Brasil’s projects in Brazil improves the lives and supports the needs of children and pregnant teenage girls living on the streets of Brazil.
Task Brasil was given an enormous boost in 1997 with a very generous donation by Jimmy Page, the Led Zeppelin rock icon, who witnessed first hand the deprivation of the children and troubles in the favelas whilst playing in Rio de Janeiro. The money donated was used to buy a plot of land in Santa Teresa on which ‘Casa Jimmy’ was built to provide a safe and happy home for a lucky few of the abandoned children.
In 2009, Evangeline auctioned off brazilian made lingirie, where 100% of the money went directly to support the well being and happiness of the poorest children in Brazil. View her auction tape below…
