Edilane and three of her eight kids are resting on a mattress on the floor. She is pregnant with a boy. The official social housing program “minha casa, minha vida” (my home, my life) provided her an apartment, but drug gangs surround the area of her supposed new home beside a dangerous favela, #CidadedeDeus. She doesn’t want to expose her kids and especially her oldest daughter (14) to possible hazardous situations. So, she prefers to stay here and tries to negotiate with the government for a new home. Edilane is a strong woman, and she never gives up. Her income is from small jobs and an in-house internet and video game facility that supplements their monthly family social services money. Families are entitled to receive a monthly social subsidy (bolsa familia) if the children are registered and attend the public school regularly.
