The History of Casa Brazil
Casa Brazil was founded in Phoenix, Arizona in 2003. A group of Brazilian women: Graça Martinet, Rose Silva, Micheline Etkin, Priscilla Sachs and Mônica Carpentieri, began hosting fund-raising events featuring the food and culture of Brazil with the goal of helping underprivileged towns and villages of northeastern Brazil. Shortly after, they created a non-profit organization called Casa Brazil, Inc.
