Together we’re going to send the poverty of the favela to the museum

Gerando Falcões BrazilFoundation


The Gerando Falcões Fund was created in September 2021 to receive donations abroad, which will be directed to the Favela 3D Project. With this, we will accelerate the impact of favela leaders across Brazil who have a common dream: to put the poverty of the favela in the museum.

About Gerando Falcões

Created in 2011 by social entrepreneur Eduardo Lyra, Gerando Falcões is an ecosystem of social development that was born in the favela. We believe that it is possible to transform the lives of children, youth, and favela residents through the combination of socio-emotional education, professional training, access to jobs and technologies.
