Some more updates for you, this is going to be a combination of our last meeting and more recent updates just because there are a few things more that have been done,
-Flights have finally been booked! Yes, a team of small town uni students will be visiting the very exotic Brazil in June. This will be very exciting as we will get to see first person what our project is aiming to help
Laura will be making and pitching a presentation to show who we are, what we do, how much money we need to raise, impact were going to have. This should give us additional support if we are successful, but of course we know it will be successful, Vida is brilliant!
Gabrielle is in the final stages of the crowdfunding project. She is also looking into video inspirations, looking at for possible future production of a video. Finally in light of creating a bank account she is working on setting us up as a charity, this is important for the future.
As forme I will be further developing the website and making improvements to our sponsorship package to make it looking good. I am also continuing research into possible advertising and increased knowledge of project, building traffic to pages

Made contact with Julia a Brazilian exchange student who was in Enactus Loughborough last year, she has volunteers who can teach the classes in Portuguese. We now have people in Rio interested in helping us with teaching the classes and running trial classes in the summer.
Made contact with Henrique, a member of Enactus Rio who is coming to Loughborough in september. He is coming to meet the team in Rocinha during the summer and will help us with the project. Also going to advise us based on previous projects run by Enactus Rio.
We have been given access to Loughborough Students RAG and we can use their charity number. For donations between now and when we get our own charity number we can use RAG to accept donations and claim gift aid.
