Project Review

Not uncommonly, needy children do not return to their homes after school for a number of reasons; instead, they play in the streets and become easy targets for drug dealers and people who exploit them. For these and other reasons there are many projects in Brazil with their focus on poor children. Volunteers in these projects are always welcome - there is much to be done.

  • Sociedade Alfa Gente
  • Projeto Guarapes

Major Responsibilities

Volunteer Responsibilities

Sociedade Alfa Gente: Sociedade Alfa Gente, based in Florianopolis , is a non-profit organization that works to keep children out of the streets. They help about 400 children in two projects, supervised by a specialist with an educational orientation. One project works with children form 1 to 6 years old, and the other takes care of children from 7 to 12. The main tasks for the volunteer will be to help teachers with the cleaning and feeding of the younger children, and supporting the older children with educational and recreational activities. Experimento will select a host family near the chosen project as the accommodation choice.

Projeto Guarapes: Projeto Guarapes is run by a private school in Natal , serving a neighborhood of needy people with approximately 20,000 inhabitants. They offer educational activities to young children from 2 to 6 years of age. The volunteer will help teachers and the school staff with the children's hygiene, feeding and activities. A homestay will be the accommodation for this project.
