For The Children Brazil is a 501c3 non profit organization founded by Alex and Erika Piagetti in 2007. This organization is the fruit of years of praying and seeking the will of God for their lives and for the future of their family. From an overwhelming desire to share the Good News of the one true God Jesus Christ and their love for children, the Piagetti Family was given a vision to take care of orphans and widows in their distress in Brazil.
After a trip to Fortaleza, in the northeast of Brazil, Alex and Erika noticed the severity of the plight of children in the slums and the lack of Bible teaching churches willing to reach them. After many divinely guided circumstances, God opened the door for For The Children Brazil to minister to children in one of the 600 impoverished communities in Fortaleza.
In 2011, after 4 years of short term missions, God moved the Piagetti family to Fortaleza to plant a Calvary Chapel. Since then God has grown the church, started home fellowships in near by towns and open the doors to 4 other communities.
The beauty of FTC is that we are not alone Through church led mission trips to Fortaleza our partners can have a hands on experience in bringing the love of the Father to the fatherless and the Good News of Salvation to the slums of Brazil.
