a pensions are not the only issue dividing brazil the quality of education people receive often depends on the wealth of your family but some people are trying to change the system. every day after she finishes work at a beauty parlor maria sousa leaves her for the love behind saudia though is one of many poor settlements ringing rio de janeiro where the government is almost invisible in daily life especially when it comes to education but it's. a lot of my neighbors barely know the alphabet and they don't know how to add also tracked correctly that means they can't get a loan is a terrible situation. and. maria goes to school in the evenings her goal is to get a middle school diploma public schools are the only option. to build your you learn when i was younger in the countryside there were very few teaches i lived far from the city and very few teachers came we had terrible conditions in school
1:16 pm
a lot of it my goal to be a song. sylvia them over on wants to help maria get her diploma he's an engineer by trade 5 times a week on a square in the middle of rio he offers free tuition in math physics and for the illiterate people the alphabet it's a neighborhood project 25 teachers helping 100 students to plug the gaps in the state school system. your 2nd high rates of violent crime is the consequence of brazil's terrible education system and unemployment for people who don't have a good education i want to help educate people to improve the quality of their life that you needed it so that troubled education system disproportionately affects favela residents but there are exceptions like the public school or seen a fund seka almost all its students come from poor backgrounds attendance is free and yet conditions aren't catastrophic. d.s.
1:17 pm
is a star pupil and has a passion for electronic engineering the school is able to cater to that enthusiasm with modern equipment thanks to international donors. so which. subtleties once said that knowledge liberates the spirit of man and man himself and a bad person is bad because they are ignorant of. the all seen often 2nd school is an exception to the rule helped by incredibly motivated teaches set up by yeah yeah so we work with values such as sustainability because these are important for us and our planet but also the human rights that apply to all of us wanted to deplore. brazil's president to show you both the nado is not considered a friend of human rights and has spoken out against minorities he also questions climate change could put creationism on the curriculum and wants to militarize
1:18 pm
schools. meanwhile susan is struggling with math but the 55 year old won't give up she's improving slowly but surely. on her way home she passes expensive private schools parents pay fees of up to a $1000.00 euros a month to send their children here. we all bought black indigenous or poor people less intelligent than wealthy ones no they just don't have the same chances if they had those their life would be different brazil would be a better and more developed country but right now that is not the case magician. education in brazil is still a question of money. right there was a big clash at the women's world cup yesterday and anthony howard is here to take
1:19 pm
us through the game between brazil and australia hi anthony so australia really needed to win this one to get their world cup campaign back on track yes they did spoiler alert i did in the end but system. context coach months before the tournament began so strike the kind of the tournament off balance and people asking why he left we didn't get an answer on that then they lost the right in going to italy so one of the favorites came here in uncertain terms lost to italy and then i face brazil it couldn't almost be worse a great same with a great player in mata all of that meaning that as we approach this game we're going to take a look as all the media reports this match was dripping with tension in the build up for. brazil welcomes their star player monster back to the side and when the referee awarded a penalty said this shirt told she stepped up to school the opening goal from the spot was her 16th world cup go to new. australia soon found themselves to kneel down crosstown cristiana and the inform strike
1:20 pm
a sense of glancing head into the fall for no brazil was flying but then australia's fight began 1st came in for the deficit touching home from close range then after half time chloe look god knows cross they did everyone and found its way into the next $22.00 and the momentum was with australia the matildas took advantage this longball caused confusion in brazil's defense and monica headed don't keep up. a spirited fight back from australia and one that keeps their world cup hopes alive. and it smiles all around there for australia. as well resident australian what about the other day and other game yesterday china versus south africa china might have really great impression on germany quite literally they left a lot of bruises on the on the german women but then left a great impression of i played a really tough guy i'm going to take a look at their match against south africa but what they found to do in that game
1:21 pm
was score a goal we can be as competent as eli he can be as calm as hot as you like but if you don't have that finishing touch like we see here from the game that was in the 44th minute that's what i like the 1st time around. i got at least on beautiful bolin and if you finish that was just gorgeous but looked like them out of school the 2nd but it was ruled out crucially they get the one result zoomie that means a lot for them because they still in the running running to get out of the group phases but in a broader context for germany that means a lot that means they progress out of the group gemini going to the next stage of the knockout phase and i can do what the german men did not in russia and that's get out of the group and who plays today 3 games jamaica italy that's the of a sawed problem a of the strike the intro draw if only when they almost good to get through the unfancied when they come so they won their 1st game against australia if they can do it again against jamaica they're in a really great position that's in group c. group d. japan who have the 2011 champions they've got a great young saying they've regenerated by play against scotland and then england
1:22 pm
against argentina that's usually where we draw the old headlines that quite the falkland islands to football and i'm getting a red card in the men's side this on the women's side doesn't have that history england of the favorites and they should win against argentina a lot to look forward to today and howard from the sports thank you. and staying with football the copa america the men's south american championships starts later today hosts brazil won their last tournament 6 years ago and have been struggling ever since it's a strange situation for a country where football is more religion and sports. brazil are no longer on top of the football world the national team doesn't instill fear into their opponents like they once did brazil won their 1st world cup in 1958 with pele. beto was part of the team that picked up the title in 1994 and the country last won the world cup in 2002. if you put on the brazil jersey you have to be
1:23 pm
passionate you must enjoy it but you must really really want it when i was nominated for the national side the 1st time i was delighted when the players today should feel the same way. to get bored this. same t.v. but the fans continue to support the team they've gone a long time without success in 2007 brazil won the cup america and in 2013 the confederations cup. now their superstar neymar is out injured the world's most expensive player will miss the copa america it's a big blow for brazil neymar left brazil when he was $21.00 most of the young up and coming stars leave to play in europe fever reports say more than $800.00 players left brazil last year alone higher wages and better conditions attract the young players. promising talents like junior who was joined around madrid is
1:24 pm
just one example. in the old days the players stayed longer at their home clubs and i identified a lot more with them. but that's a thing of the past many players go away to europe way too willy and lose contact to the people here. over. the connection between players and fans was once sacred. but there's a feeling that is no longer the case. to vietnam now and a story about an unlikely hero the 99 year old grandmother standing up against big coal some 300 people in her community have been forced to relocate but found is refusing to leave her a plot of land even after all those years demolished her house. nail it's a classic case of david versus goliath but this 99 year old grandmother is refusing
1:25 pm
to give up. i'm not leaving i'm staying right here probably fairly new i mean the officials try to evict me but i wouldn't leave my grandparents and my parents lived here and i will also stay here. i would hope. family has called home since birth until one day she was notified that authorities needed the land for a new coal plant she was offered money to move elsewhere but refused. this is what's left of the family house now the 99 year old lives in a shack next to the rubble and it's a story playing out across vietnam the country's energy demands are soaring and with it its appetite for coal. experts predict coal will account for half a fee it numbs energy production by 2030 and that means building plants and remote
1:26 pm
areas like banned from buy local say they're being strong armed out of their homes with only a physical relocation plan in place. he wanted us to move but he didn't give us land for cultivation people can't move if you don't provide a way for them to make a living. in addition to the human cost activists point to the environmental implications of expanding the coal industry they call for investment in renewable energies but these alone cannot currently meet vietnam's insatiable demand for power with plans to build some 30 new plants in the next decade it appears coal will continue to transform the country's landscapes even if it means approaching a woman from the place she's called home for almost a century when. i buy houses here my land is here
1:27 pm
