Volunteering in Rio de Janeiro

Children in a capoeira class, Rio de Janeiro

This large favela complex in Rio de Janeiro is home to one of the most successful and vibrant projects in Brazil.  Through martial arts, the children and young people learn self control and discipline in a safe environment off the streets.  Our volunteers teach English and computer studies and there are opportunities to do other activities with the children and young people.  Truly a life changing experience, volunteering here is something you will never forget.
