Read the first part in Rio de Janeiro there is the city that appears in promotional newsletters used by travel agencies with idyllic beaches, fantastic carnivals, mythical stadiums and delights in abundance. Unfortunately there is also the city’s favelas where poverty 11,000 children and adults alike. The issue is of gravity that the authorities has thought the idea of lifting a wall around the neighborhoods poorer city. The wall of three meters, they said those who propose it, would help the security forces to control the favelas of Rocinha, Vidigal and Parque da Cidade, areas in where there have been outbreaks of violence among gangs of drug traffickers.

But, definitely, poverty must be reduced it giving people tools to improve their condition and the best instrument is a worthy and honest means to obtain sufficient income.
