Abstract

After 5 years of interviews and traveling through the poorest regions of Brazil, which lack mostly in state services, we can attest to the fact that the BF program produced significant change in the lives of its grantees. One such change constitutes the first steps towards overcoming the culture of resignation, in other words, the resigned wait to starve to death or to die from diseases of poverty. This was a drama that was commonplace in this world: its lament was the subject of most of the songs and popular poetry of the region. The greatest Brazilian writers have written their masterpieces against the backdrop of the hunger and misery of our fellow citizens.
