Very interesting project helping and teaching children in Rio

Great program. Very interesting project helping and teaching children. And for sure, placed in the best city ever: Rio de Janeiro. For the moment, it’s been a memorable experience, easy to learn Portuguese as it includes classes too, and flexible working times in order to be able to travel around the magnificent country, Brazil. I definitely recommend the program to everyone that wants to volunteer in Rio.

Feel inspired to volunteer teaching children in Rio?

Volunteer in Brazil working in child development or in a childcare centre and help us save our children.

Children in Rio de Janeiro attend school either in the morning or afternoon, leaving them unsupervised for long periods of time if their parents are at work.

There are also several crèches (daycares) inside favelas of Rio that take care of babies while their parents have to work to make their living.

  1. I am currently living in Brazil, year abroad experience as part of my BA for Media and Communication (University of Liverpool) studying in PUC – Rio de Janeiro. I and would like to get more information to teach English for children.
    Please send me general information about the teaching / development plan, such as location, cost, duration, etc…
    I am very aware of the problems facing favelas and the latest development regarding confrontation of police and gangs. I would like to avoid the area. Would your organisation have any other alternative locations than shanty towns?
