"My story with the "Vejo um Jardim" Project began in 2015 when I went to visit Pedro and Nadia in Rio de Janeiro. I spent very few hours in Gramacho, but it was enough to mark my life and make me want to return. In 2017 I was able to take a group of young people from IBAB and carry out a social project. We were 22 people in Gramacho, and it was an incredible opportunity to perceive and recognize a GARDEN in what is usually referred to as a dump. In those days, I met children, teenagers, young people, adults and old people with incredible stories. And I was able to experience the extraordinary reality of seeing gardens amid chaos. We saw gardens which that are not defined by an environment or natural beauty, but mainly by the beauty of the people and their stories. I thank Pedro and Nadia for offering me this chance and for blessing me, just as they bless those gardens in Gramacho."
