Come and take the Children at Risk School!
In 1986 a YWAM base was started in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, with a specific focus on children at risk: street children, children with AIDs, deaf children and children growing up in the slums.
Various teams started seven different shelters for children in need and four community development centers in slums. At the same time, a growing ministry to children at risk developed in YWAM Hong Kong.
Together they developed, in collaboration with YWAM’s University of the Nations, the Children at Risk School to train their staff and to increase knowledge about working with children in need.
This school is given yearly and has multiplied to several other cities in Brazil and to different countries like South Africa, Australia, Netherlands, and the Philippines.
“It was such a good school!”
"The Children at Risk School has empowered me to look more holistically at critical issues surrounding those most vulnerable children"
"The school has given me the practical tools to take action and advocate."
“This school changed my views from a “save the child” mentality to “empower, support, and improve families and communities.”
