Canada-Brazil connections against hunger and for life
Named after a Brazilian human rights and food activist, the Betinho Project aims to discuss participatory, democratic processes for achieving food security. Herbert “Betinho” de Souza was a humanitarian forced into exile by the military dictatorship in Brazil in the 1970s. During this time, Betinho lived for five years in Toronto, Canada. The Betinho Project aims to celebrate his life and work “against hunger and for life” everywhere in the world.
