Bilú told his father: "Dad, God is not satisfied yet". The man, surprised asked why. "He wants you to take care of children."
Projeto Bilú is a non governamental organization (NGO) taking care of children and teenagers in many cities of Brazil. Our orphanages across the country welcomes many young persons, in cases they are abandoned or they live in unfair surrounding. We are expanding, as much as we are meeting many cities and their mayors in order to get more and more installations. We have been spreading Projeto Bilú's name in the north of the country by making association with independent organizations, since they were looking forward for better structures. Further, our program "Children in Sports" was created to pull children our of tough living realties, put them in a sport structure, coach them. We offer many cultural and sport classes such as Boxe & Muai Thai, Percussions, English and finally Ballet in our fifteen and more "Nucleos" (locals) across Brazil.
In 2010, before the World Cup, we were invited to come to South Africa and bring an Under17 selection to play in a tournament. We finished unbeaten and won the tournament. Since then, we receive invitations from everywhere in the world. As a result, the "Children in Sport" program recently started an International Soccer Academy.
Among the hundred athletes in Caieiras and those who come from other cities or clubs, we selected 30 boys (15 Under14 and 15 Under16) to make a tour in Ukraine, thanks to Paulo Cesar and other big names in professional soccer who gave their help for our first big selection in June 2011.
