Founded in 2018, TLF brought together visionary people who are good by nature and committed to being agents of changes in the lives of children and adolescents who come from families living in extreme vulnerability. Through projects that encourage intellectual, social, emotional and physical education, TLF offers and supports actions that cultivate social values and enable children to find their potential to move forward in life.
These are events that promote individuals’ qualification, personal and emotional growth, life-transforming activities, educational, sporting, cultural projects, and initiatives of appreciation for communities in which these children are nested. Acting in an effective way in communities where there are children and adolescents in a situation of vulnerability, becomes a mission that requires dedication, technical preparation, hard work and many sacrifices most of times.
Based on the belief that the work in favor of children in need must be a collective effort, TLF strives to positively intermediate the relationship between those in need who seek for help, and those who have the resources to share. This is attained by engaging volunteers, donors, companies and organizations as great partners on this mission. TLF believes that volunteer work benefits everyone involved, both the ones who are the target of the foundation’s actions who will have their needs met, and the very same volunteers and donors, who with financial and time availability find real personal satisfaction in becoming definitely agents of changes.
Being a member of TLF is to face challenges with optimism, much energy and the assurance of rewarding results. It is to understand that a dignifying future for the children is, consequently, a warranty of stability and prosperity for families and the whole society.
