Volunteering Program – Brazil

 

Brazil is a developing country, but despite the economic progress it is making it still has its problem areas. The most vulnerable in the poor communities of Brazil are the children, which often do not return home after school, but instead play on the streets and become easy targets for drug dealers and people who start exploiting them.

Our volunteer program helps to improve society through a foreign perspective at the same time that it contributes to the intern’s professional and personal growth, challenging them to think outside the box and to build resourceful network.
