Bahia Street (www.bahiastreet.org) is a non-profit organization based in Seattle, Salvador, and London, that breaks the cycle of poverty and violence through education. Bahia Street provides high quality education, health and nutrition services, leadership training, and community outreach with the goal of fostering greater equality for impoverished girls and their families living in the shantytowns of Salvador. Because of Bahia Street’s commitment to locally-driven social change, twelve girls have now entered university. With new initiatives focused on high school girls and parental support, next generations of activists are able to successfully work for change for their communities.
