Task Brasil Trust was established in the UK in 1992. Its mission is to improve the lives and support the needs of children and pregnant girls living on the streets in Brasil. In 1997 Jimmy Page made a major donation to Task Brasil after having seen the plight of children in Rio de Janeiro when he was there performing. The donation was used to buy the land and house for "Casa Jimmy", which provides a home for abandoned street kids and pregnant teens.

Action for Brazil’s Children Trust (ABC Trust) is is also a UK based charity dedicated to helping children and young people in cities across Brazil. ABC was founded by Jimena Pratcha, with Jimmy Page as the founding patron. Other patrons include Brian May, Jeremy Irons and PelĂ©.
