Edu Lyra grew up in a favela in Guarulhos, Brazil. He is the author of the book Jovens Falcões and founded the Gerando Falcões Institute. The institute, through more than 20 social programmes, works with thousands of families in the community through education focused on sports, culture, professional qualifications and income. In recognition of his work, Edu was selected by the World Economic Forum as one of the 15 young Brazilians changing the world, as part of Global Shapers.
