” Look who found me, Mestre Fran, satisfaction Mr. Francisco better known as Mestre Fran, helped many kids off the streets with his capoeira project. Unfortunately many of these boys have already died from wrong choices, but those who stayed today have their families and are well, thanks to Mestre Fran. Thanks for making a difference in my life and taking me out of the streets and the world of crime. God Bless” – Paulo Cesar Pereira
