This report is the culmination of a rich exchahgen between Pratt PSPD graduate-level students and various non-governmental organizations in Sáo Paulo, Brazil. Prior to the trip Pratt students surveyed housing developments in East new York and the Lower East Side, interviewing profssionals in the field of homelessness and affordable housing. Students then had the oppurtunity to take comprehensive tours of similar housing developments in Sáo Paulo, while sharing and exchaning ideas with working professionals to reduce homelessness and produce long-term affordable housing in Sáo Paulo and NYC.
