About the local hosting organizationICYE Brazil
About the volunteer workThe educators try to encourage the skills and interests of the kids through different activities, such as educational and pedagogical activities, music and art workshops, sports, lectures and debates (about social themes, drugs, sexuality, healthÂ…), Capoeira and dance, English lessons and the promotion of activities for their inclusion in the community. The volunteers will help the educators during these activities; will participate in the games and sports with the entire group; they will have to stay sometimes just with a small group of kids, helping them in some specific activities (reading, start to write, homeworkÂ…) or proposing some new workshops (story telling, simple music, arts, English lessons, sportsÂ…). They will also help in the kitchen or with administrative work, if necessary, or visit the families of the children at home.
Local accommodationHosting Situation (Board and Lodging) The volunteer will live with 4 sisters (nuns) closed to the project, in a simple but nice house, with a private bedroom. The sisters are from about 40 to 75 years old and are very friendly and open-minded.
About the project locationSmall and simple project placed in a favela, one of the poorest areas of the city. Good for volunteers who prefer a more 'familiar' situation, as the staff is small and very receptive.
