Parque Horácio is a NGO that was formed by women from the community interested in helping the social and financial development of the community. To reach their goals, the program runs AIDS and DST prevention groups, health promotion campaigns, distribution of contraceptives, and their succesfull health promotion-street stands, that provides outreach on the street about AIDS/STDs. Besides the prevention groups, the Project also offers classes for children and women in the arts and games.
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.
