This wonderful project was created with the goal of helping to improve the English speaking abilities of the residents of one of Rio de Janeiro’s largest favela (shanty town) communities: Complexo do Alemão. 

As is common in many of the worlds poorer communities, an ability to speak English unlocks a new world of possibilities for children and opens up many professional opportunities for the working-age, often within the service and tourism industries. Unfortunately, access to English tuition is limited for many residents of the Complexo do Alemão community, so this project offers free short-term intensive English classes to enable favela residents to prepare for the job market, school exams, and to simply improve their future prospects.  

Goals of this Project:

·       Provide free English language classes to the residents of Complexo do Alemão – one of Rio’s largest favelas,

·       Improve the future prospects of some of Rio’s most impoverished people, and help them to break the poverty cycle,

·       Expose non-English speakers to native English speakers in order to improve pronunciation and conversational skills,

·       Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both residents and international volunteers alike.

 

Start Dates

This project is available year-round and programs start every SUNDAY. Volunteers can choose to participate for periods ranging from 2 weeks to 12 weeks. Longer stays can be arranged directly with the local team, but will be subject to availability and individual visa conditions.
