Volunteering in Rio de Janeiro

POSTED IN Blog Tags volunteer, rio de janeiro AUTHOR Lennart Goebel

Volunteering in Rio de Janeiro, one of the most beautiful cities of the world - dubbed as "Cidade Maravilhosa" by the Cariocas, residents of Rio. Cidade Maravilhosa means the Wonderful City, as it stretches out with curving hills overlooking magnificent beaches, and protected by "Christ the Redeemer" on top of Corcovado.

Open-minded people at the "Wonderful City"

The residents of Rio are open-minded people and will welcome you with open hearts - even if there is a language barrier. If you can get any chance of learning some Portuguese before travel, that would be highly appreciated, even, if it is just a few words like "Bom dia" or "Tudo bem?" - you will make local people very happy! With volunteer programs  of four weeks or more, Portuguese lessons are being provided anyway.
