The city of Fortaleza that will host six world cup games is the fifth most unequal city in the world. 3 million inhabitants live in Fortaleza, most of them on a bare minimum. 110 million euros were invested in the rebuilding of the World Cup stadium, that is roughly the same as the amount the state has invested in public schools in the last four years combined. The organizations that help vulnerable children in Fortaleza are also feeling the pressure from the World Cup economy. Last year two of them closed down because they did not have the means to take care of the children without financial support. Life in Fortaleza is not only rough, it’s also dangerous. It is ranked as the 7th most violent city in the world with a murder rate of 73 killings per 100,000 inhabitants.
