Teaching in Rio
The program I participated in was in the group of favelas called Complexo do Alemão. I was teaching English to two community leaders. My volunteer partners worked on the community garden for Abraço Campeão, the non-profit organization helping youth to learn boxing as an educational and personal development tool. The program was very well organized and there was nice interaction between volunteers and people from the youth center. It was incredible to see how much work could be done in a short time! Both leaders I interacted with were very motivated to learn English and were very pleasant in our interaction. I learned a lot about their work and about the Complexo do Alemão community. I will follow on Facebook their website to see their development in the future and tell others I know about their work.
