Brazil is a country of extraordinary size, covering almost half of South America , granting it an expressive cultural diversity and a huge variety of landscapes and people, creating deep impressions on its visitors. As a volunteer you will experience Brazil from a whole different side and gain a perspective from the community. The goal of all the volunteer programme is to make a positive impact on Brazilian society and on the projects in which they take place and promote intercultural exchange. It is the ideal travel experience for those who want to go beyond the ordinary.

We can develop a programme for you according to your abilities and interests. All programmes take place in the city of Rio de Janeiro. You are lodged in wonderful Guest Houses in Santa Teresa, one of Rio de Janeiro's most enchanting neighbourhoods. The official language in Brazil is Portuguese. If you can grasp a little, it will definitely take you a longer way and you will feel much more rewarded, and at the same time you would be able to offer more to the organisation. Therefore, we have included an intensive 20 hours Portuguese course that takes place in parallel with the volunteering on the first week of the programme.
