In 2003, a group of Brazilian women (Graça Martinet, Rose Silva, Micheline Etkin, Priscilla Sachs e Mônica Carpentieri) in Phoenix, Arizona formed a volunteer group to help the children of impoverished towns and villages of northeastern Brazil. They began hosting fund-raising events featuring the food and culture of Brazil, and eventually formed an incorporated, non-profit organization called Casa Brazil, Inc.
