Task Brasil Trust is a UK registered charity established in 1992. Under the supervision of its small London office.

Task Brasil started running residential care for street children and young people in 1998 after receiving a very generous donation from Jimmy Page, the Led Zeppelin rock icon, who witnessed first hand the deprivation of the children and troubles in the favelas whilst playing in Rio de Janeiro. The money donated was used towards buying a house on a plot of land in Santa Teresa, a district of Rio de Janeiro. ‘Casa Jimmy’ has provided a safe and happy home for 500 young children and pregnant teenage girls who were either living on the streets, or leading lives of great deprivation and vulnerability.

In addition to Casa Jimmy, over the years, Task Brasil has run a number of houses for Street Children, teenage boys, teenage girls and their babies.

Task Brasil's projects in Brazil continue to improve the lives and support the needs of underprivileged children and young people.

Project Crescer started on 1 November 2011 for children and teenagers, aged 10 - 17 years old from low income families who attend the state run schools nearby in Santa Teresa neighbourhood. The project helps some of the most disadvantaged teenagers in Santa Teresa, Rio de Janeiro. Our goal is to complement and expand upon the education that they are receiving at school, so that they are given every opportunity to fulfill their potential and thrive in life.
