Arsenal da Esperança Bazaar

Arsenal da Esperança (or “hope arsenal”) welcomes the disadvantaged population of São Paulo offering shelter, food, basic health service, and a possibility of professional relocation.

The project exists since 1996 and is located in the former Hospedaria de Imigrantes (immigrant’s inn) in the neighborhood of Brás.

Every second Saturday of the month, Arsenal da Esperança organizes a bazaar with new as well as used products received by donation. The bazaar holds clothing items, shoes, toys, and various accessories.

The income is used for the maintenance of Arsenal da Esperança.
