RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - SEPTEMBER 19: Two boys chat beside a tiled wall in the Providéncia favela, on September 19, 2012 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. One third of the buildings in the neighborhood are being demolished for an Olympic stadium, a gondola and other 'improvements' by the government. Many residents fear city planners are trying to upgrade this lower-class neighborhood near downtown to a middle class area where the poor will be pushed out. This favela is the oldest in the country, settled in 1897. Favelas are historically informal settlements without services, like water and electricity, but now they are being integrated into the city fabric.
