- #SDG2: Zero Hunger - Countdown to Rio 2016! (português abaixo) "My profession? I am a barber, photographer, cultural producer and father too. I do everything that brings benefit to the community, regardless of who is getting help. Our place has a lot to offer and, sometimes, young people are lost between these choices. The family base is the biggest difficulty here: young people do not have to put money in the house, but to study, make a qualifying course. I see our children and feel I can not leave them behind, I need to guide them to become good people. Almost no one stopped to hear the children; Most orders and expect them to obey. I made sure of listen them." – Key Tetra, 38 years old #ODS2: Fome Zero - Contagem regressiva para Rio 09 dias! "Minha profissão? Sou barbeiro, fotógrafo, produtor cultural e pai também. Faço tudo que traz benefício para a comunidade, independentemente de quem está recebendo ajuda. Nosso lugar tem muita coisa a oferecer e, às vezes, os jovens ficam perdidos no meio dessas escolhas. A base familiar é a maior dificuldade daqui: os jovens não têm que colocar dinheiro dentro de casa, mas estudar, fazer um curso de qualificação. Vejo as nossas crianças e sinto que não posso deixá-las para trás, preciso orientá-las para que se tornem pessoas do bem. Quase ninguém para e ouve as crianças; a maioria manda e espera que elas obedeçam. Eu faço questão de ouvir o que elas têm a dizer" – Key Tetra, 38 anos #humansofrio #humansofmyworld #rio2016 #cantagalo PNUD Brasil United Nations Development Programme - UNDP UNDP in Latin America and the Caribbean SDG Action Campaign 3 hours ago
