World Education began work in Brazil in 2003 to develop a curriculum to promote more gender-equitable attitudes among young men, and to promote the empowerment of women, through the projects Program H and Program M.

In recent years, World Education worked in Brazil between 2011 - 2016 with ConnectEd, which helped disadvantaged youth achieve better learning outcomes, gain skills that prepared them for the world of work, and be more active in their communities. 60% of youth involved in the program were placed in jobs.
