Brazil is the largest and most populous country in South America and the 5th largest country in the world. Brazil is so large that it borders all other South American countries except for Chile and Ecuador. This tropical land is not only known for its size but its ecological treasures with a large Atlantic coast, a mountain range, and the Amazon river basin and rainforest. Despite its amazing beauty there is a great need for humanitarian aid in Brazil. With around 186 million citizens, 40 million live below the poverty level, a staggering number mostly due to social injustice and a struggling economy. World Endeavors offers an amazing opportunity to help Brazil and its people at the grassroots level. Choose from teaching, orphanage, environmental conservation, wildlife conservation, health education, and community development projects.
- Major Responsibilities
Volunteers help shape young lives in Brazil by sharing their English skills and teaching talents. Volunteers act as classroom assistants, aiding Brazilian English teachers and providing tutoring help to students who require it. Volunteers can also get involved with the children through extra-curricular activities, such as sports, theater, and the arts. Volunteers will have the opportunity to improve their teaching skills as well as get a feel for what teaching ESL is like. For many impoverished children, English skills play an essential part in moving up the socio-economic ladder.
