WHAT WE MEAN BY

"TRAVEL THAT EMPOWERS ALL" 

By visiting Favela Organica, we empower a woman-owned organization that is feeding her community, and teaching the importance of nutrition, wellness, and sustainability.

The SDG we support

SDG #11: SUSTAINABLE CITIES AND COMMUNITIES

Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable

 

More than half of our world’s population live in cities, and that is projected to rise to 60 per cent by 2030. Rapid urbanization has caused a growing number of favelas,  low income neighborhoods, inadequates infrastructures and services (such as waste collection and water and sanitation systems, roads and transport), worsening air pollution, and unplanned urban sprawl. Through the lens of sustainability we're working with locals to discover innovative ways to empower their community and the environment.

Favela Organica
 

Favela Orgânica is a pioneering initiative that originated in the Babilônia and Chapéu Mangueira communities, in the south of the city of Rio de Janeiro. It appeared in September 2011, as a result of the sensitive look and initiative of Regina Tchelly. From a holistic approach that encompasses concepts such as conscious consumption, alternative gastronomy, homemade composting and gardens in small spaces, the project has already expanded its workshops, offerings, and educational courses to several states in Brazil.
