Brazil - Rio de Janeiro - Old Slum of Rocinha - Daily Life

Children play on hills surrounding the Rocinha slum in Rio de Janeiro. The Rocinha is one of the oldest, largest and most populated slums in Brazil. Settled in the early 1960s by immigrants of the northeastern states, it now houses an estimated 100,000 people. Today the slum has developed from a shanty town into an urbanised slum. Almost all the houses are made from concrete and brick within three- and four-story buildings and almost all with only basic sanitation, plumbing, and electricity. Rocinha has a developed infrastructure with hundreds of businesses such as banks, drug stores, bus lines, cable television, including locally based channel TV ROC.
