Film Description

Meet Joice, a determined young woman from the community of Alagados in Salvador, Brazil who is overcoming the odds and becoming a leader in her community. In a community where the average income for a family of 4-8 is approximately $200/month, access to education can make all the difference in helping to reduce poverty. From a semi-literate family to a university education, learn how Joice’s role in the community is changing with the support of a college scholarship from the Alagados Project. Joice’s story is one of many in a group that is building a movement for change in their community.
