A student at the Escola Familia Agricola Antonio Fontenele (EFA) near Lago do Junco, holds a chicken on the school farm. Students, many who come from far away, alternate living at the school and at home for 14 days at a time. The school is supported by the Association of Land Reform Settlements of Maranhao State (ASSEMA), an umbrella NGO of associations operated for and by rural peasants and Babacu nut breakers.
