ChildFund Brasil was officially registered and instated in August of 1966. Belo Horizonte, MG was ChildFund International’s first regional office in Latin America. Additional work is done in the Field Offices of: Fortaleza (CE), Cariri (CE), Vale do Jequitinhonha (MG), Belo Horizonte (MG), Anagé (BA), Santa Luz (PI), and Cavalcante/GO. These offices are located closer to the assisted communities and, therefore, are strategic in monitoring the implementation of social technologies, programs, and social projects. From the 2000s, the organization expanded into new areas. In 2016, it directly benefited 40,000 children, adolescents and young adults in regions of vulnerability in the states of Ceará, Rio Grande do Norte, Pernambuco, Minas Gerais, Piauí, Goiás, and Bahia.
