Drive truckers are the most frequently clients of the children and teenagers living
in sexual commercial exploitation situation at the Brazilian roads.
Responsible for transporting more than 60% of all freight moved in the country, these professionals spend most of their life in the driver's seat of the truck.

According a large national research developed by Childhood - Brasil with the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, drive-truckers consider themselves marginalized, eat and sleep poorly and stop at places with lack of infrastructure.
More than a third of them admitted having participated directly in a situation of sexual exploitation of child or adolescent, often with no clear idea of what this means.

BR-163 Highway is one of the main roads cutting the heart of the Amazon.

BR-163, which is slated to be paved as an export corridor for soybeans via the Amazon River, traverses an area that is largely outside of Brazilian government control.
A climate of generalized lawlessness and impunity prevails, and matters related to environment and to land tenure are especially unregulated.

Rainbows and shadows were guiding my way during the travel on this emblematic highway.
