Morrinho is a truly multifaceted program that offers volunteers the opportunity to teach language courses in English, Spanish, and French; photography; outreach training for the boys when they take their exhibitions abroad; web design; and fundraising. The centerpiece of Morrinho is a scale model of the favelas of Rio de Janeiro made basically with bricks. The “Morrinho model” today occupies an area of 300 square meters in the Pereira da Silva community, boasting a wealth of details of places like: funk clubs, police, drugs sales points, alleys, staircases, small bars etc.
No specific skills or qualification are required, except the volunteer needs to be friendly, open, flexible and should have good communication skills.
Accommodation: Our volunteers are lodged in wonderful Guest Houses in Santa Teresa, one of Rio de Janeiro\'s most enchanting neighborhoods.
Food: Brazil is a relatively inexpensive country for foreigners, but it all depends on your lifestyle. As described above, Iko Poran houses also have fully equipped kitchens where the volunteers may cook. A meal at a restaurant may be as cheap as R$ 7.00 in very nice and healthy popular restaurants or up to R$ 30.00 in nicer places.
