The football world cup may not have been a success on the pitch for the Brazilian national team but the opportunity was seized by Gabriel Davies to raise vital funds for the To Ligado Project.
Gabriel Davies from Lancaster has volunteered on five different occasions with VinB, serving in both the To Ligado Project in Rio de Janeiro and the Development For All Programme in Cristino Castro, NE Brazil. Gabriel’s latest venture has been to organise a programme for people wanting to experience Brazil and enjoy the World Cup. Along with university colleague and friend Farhaan, Gabriel promoted and facilitated a world cup experience for 18 people whilst at the same time raising over £3000 for the To Ligado Project.
On behalf of all those connected to the project Beth thanked Gabriel and Farhaan for their ingenuity and hard work.
Gabriel’s heart is never far away from Brazil and he hopes to return to Rio in the near future to undertake further studies in green technologies.
The project is able to continue serving the communities of Santa Teresa because of the excellent work undertaken by people like Gabriel & Farhaan.
