Univida is a Christian school that seeks to bring life, hope and opportunity to children born in the slums of Fortaleza, Brazil. Mark and Ruth, the directors, teach children about the love of God and provide them with food and high-quality education - things not normally available in those areas. Many of the children go on to work in professional fields afterwards. We have been supporting Univida since 2006 and some of our members have been to visit them in Fortaleza.   One of those, Anne, works as the volunteer administrator in their UK office, based here in The Sanctuary.  More information about their work can be found on their website:
