RISE: Rio De Janiero
Every day, 200,000 people around the world are leaving their homes for cities in search of more opportunity and a better life. More often than not, they land in the poor and neglected “slums” of their new city. Often with no formal property rights, gangs, and police corruption, the odds of survival in slums can seem overwhelming.
Yet, despite difficult conditions and incredible hardship, many of these inhabitants are not only surviving … they’re rising up. We traveled to one of South America’s largest slums (Rocinha in Rio De Janiero) where decades of residents’ creativity, cooperation and hustle have transformed their makeshift community of wood shacks and dirt floors into something that in many ways resembles a “normal” neighborhood with permanent housing, electricity, internet and thousands of businesses.
