With suitcases full of FLL parts, mats, and laptops, the WarriorBorgs make regular summer visits to Rio de Janeiro, intent on changing children's lives in Brazil's poorest slums. These were children whose families struggled daily to put meals on the table. These were children who were designated as caretakers of younger siblings and discouraged from pursuing a proper education. These were children who are offered false hope in the narcotics trade on their way to subpar schools. Within our few weeks in the slums, we ignite interests and passions for STEM that inspire these children to pursue proper education and life-changing careers. Currently, our team members are working with a Brazilian entrepreneur to fabricate her website, further spreading our impact within the Brazilian community.
