On 31.8.1994 the Association for the support of Brazilian Street Children eV was founded by six senior football players and Giovane Elber. Since 24.11.2008 a foundation attached. Chairman of club and foundation is the popular and successful ex-football professional Giovane Elber. Marked by his own childhood and education, he does not want to accept the misery of street children. He wants to give them a chance to live a decent life. Education instead of alms, help for self-help and love and care for poor and neglected children is their motto. All collected donations will go into the projects 100%, as the board members pay the administrative costs out of their own pocket.
