Ethiopian Airlines


Ethiopian Airlines (Ethiopian) is the fastest growing Airline in Africa. In its close to seven decades of operations, Ethiopian has become one of the continent’s leading carriers, unrivalled in its efficiency and operational success.
Ethiopian commands the lion share of the pan-African passenger and cargo network operating the youngest and most modern fleet to more than 76 international destinations across five continents. Ethiopian fleet includes ultra-modern and environmentally friendly aircraft such as the Boeing 787, Boeing 777-200LR, Boeing 777-300ER, Boeing 777-200LR Freighter and Bombardier Q-400 with double cabin. In fact, Ethiopian is the first airline in Africa to own and operate these aircraft.

Ethiopian is a multi award winning airline registering an average growth of 25% in the past seven years.

The Star


The Star, which adopted the slogan 'Fresh, Independent, Different' to differentiate itself from its two main competitors that were perceived as excessively conservative, remains the most independent of the Kenyan newspapers and probably the most outspoken. It has more regional news, more sports news, more social pages and more opinion columns than its competitors.
It targets a younger market than the Standard and the Nation but particularly tries to attract the attention of the 'thinking' reader. It has been running an advertising campaign with the catchline 'Smart People Read the Star'.

Nation Media Group


The Nation Media Group, founded by His Highness the Aga Khan in 1959, has become the largest independent media house in East and Central Africa. As the leading multi-media house in the East African region, it has print as well as electronic media and the digital platforms which attracts a regular readership quite unparalleled in the region.
We the Africa to Brazil team are proud to have NMG as our official media partner in East Africa.

Jubilee Scholarship Fund


The Jubilee Scholarship Fund is a comprehensive programme that attends to the child's need for education- through the scholarship, life skills and mentorship- with the help of our team of volunteer mentors and trainers, and social support systems- by actively engaging their parents and guardians and walking with them in their journey toward self-sustainability.
Nairobi Chapel had for quite some time received an overwhelming number of requests to pay high school fees for brilliant children. Most of these children had exemplary results in KCPE, but were not able to join high school or had to drop out very early in their high school education. The reason for this – NO SCHOOL FEES.
Africa to Brazil is proud to support The Jubilee Scholarship Fund in its endevour to educate these needy but bright students
