We’re happy to announce that SELAVIP, a South-American foundation dedicated to funding housing projects for the poor, has awarded ARCHIVE with a grant to begin work in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Our work in the favelas looks to improve the health and standard of living of the 50 most vulnerable families living in the Vital Brazil neighborhood.  In collaboration with local community members and our local partner, Soluções Urbanas, this pilot intervention will be delivered over a period of 7 months.
