From a chaotic early life, the girls at Brasilia Girlstown can begin to enjoy their childhood, regain their health, thrive at school and learn the skills they need to build a productive future for themselves and their families.
The girls at Brailisa are energetic and are encouraged to enjoy a variety of activities. The girls receive full-time care, three regular meals a day, full healthcare support and have access to onsite facilities which include vocational training workshops, sports facilities, a large gymnasium with a stage and a dental clinic that provides support to the girls at school and the local community.
