Brazil Volunteer in Brazil

"Rio de Janeiro is one of the most marvellous cities of the world and I was really happy to volunteer there. It was a great experience: I got to know many nice people, a wonderful city, country and culture!"

Katharina Strienz, Germany

Bustling metropolises, nestled among forested hills, sit alongside stretching coastline; creating a stark contrast between nature and city.  But this is characteristic of Brazil, where an effervescent culture sets itself up amidst immense natural wonders.  Between the two, this large South American country is bursting at the seams with the spectacular.  Colonial architecture tangles with the sheer diversity of the people that mingle along the streets, making the food, music and dance a unique blend of influences from around the globe. Volunteers in Brazil can experience this dynamic culture by helping out with carnival preparations in Rio.

The wildlife across the vast landscapes are only to be marvelled at.  They include toucans, scarlet macaws, howler monkeys, capybara, pink dolphins, sea turtles and thousands of other living species.  And with Brazil’s Amazon forest producing around one-third of the world’s oxygen, this country provides a literal breath of fresh air.
