In Chapter 3 of 16, micro-philanthropist Adam Carter shares why Brazilian shanty town favelas offer a pure win or lose view into community philanthropy efforts. Failure to engage children early means they will enter the drug trade and die young. Community programs and education initiatives provide favela children opportunities for hope and achievement. Based on experience working in several favelas, Carter shares that kids not engaged in these programs are easily lured into the drug trade.
