by RafaelTheSecond

The Assunção School is now a place where the poor comminities of the favelas around Santa Tereza has free education and lots of activities, it also has a very old church. The building is a big catholic complex where some years ago it was a privita high school just for girls.

Now it is one of the safe shelter for those who do not want to follow a life of crime, lots of help are provided to the poor children, and for sure, they also need you!!!!

This picture was taken in one of the halls of the ancient school.
