Light of wisdom - I

Hanging out on the streets at night is not exactly the healthiest way for him to grow up, but hopefully the Guarani’s united way and the light from their ancestors will protect 7-year old Karai and the many other Guarani children like him, from the harm such a lifestyle can eventually lead to.


Karai comes from the tribe of approx. 400 Guarani Indians of Bracuí village in Angra dos Reis, situated approximately one hour from the coastal historic town of Paratí in the state of Rio de Janeiro.
