In 2003, dozens of families occupied the Galpao da Araujo Barreto, an abandoned chocolate factory in Salvador de Bahia, Brazil. Before moving there, the families had lived in the dangerous streets of the city, but, tired of living with so much violence and despair, they came together and took over the deserted factory which was in ruins, making it their own home. Here, they created a microcosm where problems of drugs, prostitution and violence could be tackled with the support of the community.
