Crianças Avivadas Project

Ticiele de Camargo believes that we all can make a positive impact on the lives of many abandoned children in the world. This positive impact can be done by donating our time, prayers and energy to the children.

 

Ticiele came from a family in Brazil that voluntarily helped many unprivileged families and children. ‘‘We visited houses that did not even water or electricity, we always made sure they felt loved and accepted by us. My mom still loves to visit these people back home, last Christmas, she went to the supermarket and bought food for a family. I went with her and we gave them the box filled with such nice foods, meats and panettone. This family got very emotional because their little son had been asking his parents for sweets and stuff to eat during Christmas day but unfortunately they could not afford it. I think love and acceptance is the most basic thing we can offer people and of course, donate food, clothes and pray with them.”  Experiences like this helped Ticiele to tackle human agency with boldness and profoundly reflect about the outcome of people from the lower social class. Many of Ticiele’s writings revolve around societal issues that became prominent topics for her writings especially during her development from child to adult.

 

In 2016, the Poet and her friend founded ‘Crianças Avivadas’ a charity project in Beira, Mozambique. The project has over 30 children who need care, clothes and schooling help. The children are all from different ages, from babies to teenagers. The volunteers who work in this project are friends and local people who voluntarily offer help by preparing meals and assisting the children with literacy skills and making sure they improve their personal hygiene.

The project is always open for more help, whether volunteering or donations. The children need medicine, school stuff and clothes on their daily basis.
