The Brazilian Zippy’s Friends programme is one of the largest in the world. From its start in a few schools in São Paulo in 2004, the programme has expanded enormously and is now running in five Brazilian states, in more than 40 cities.
Our original partner in Brazil was CVV (Centro de Valorização da Vida), a national network of centres offering a listening service to people in crisis, but in 2006 a new organisation was set up, specifically to run Amigos do Zippy and similar programmes: ASEC (Associação pela Saúde Emocional de Crianças). Its small and dedicated team of trainers has had great success in developing Amigos do Zippy.
