Counteracting the migration of young people from rural to urban areas
Many young people in north-eastern Brazil feel that they have no chance of establishing lives for themselves in their native rural region. They either migrate in droves to the large cities or look for work helping with the harvest on large plantations, where they are likely to be exploited. Our partner organisation, Centro Sabiá, helps young people to develop prospects for a future in the countryside. Agroforst is an ecological method of agriculture that provides a sustainable starting point.
