School lunch programme in Brazil

Authorities in Brazil have come up with a plan to lift 60 million Brazilians out of extreme poverty in two years time.

Under the plan, known as "Brazil without Extreme Poverty", the Latin American country hopes to beat the deadline set by world leaders at the United Nations in 2000 to eradicate extreme poverty by 2015.

Luis Henrique Paiva, Secretary for National Income and Citizenship discussed the plan with Monica Grayley.
