To support social mobilisation for the respect of the rights of minors.


The association Baixada Social Circus was established by Terre des Hommes – Lausanne in 2002 to promote the socialisation and reintegration of street children from Baixada Fluminense in Rio de Janeiro through a circus programme. In April 2012 the association gained recognition as an independent Brazilian non-governmental organisation. 


In 2012 Fondation Alta Mane supported the Baixada’s circus and artistic activities in favour of 200 children and it contributed to the opening of community and institutional spaces for community therapy sessions, discussion groups and community meetings.
