Volunteering in Brazil

Hi Chrissy,
if you are thinking of volunteering in Brazil, try a local organization like Iko Poran.
Iko POran is a non-profit organization recognized as a Public Interest Organization by the Brazilian Ministry of Justice.
You should always look for local organization based in developing countris. Most of other providers are mainly profit-oriented traveling companies based in First World nations. Iko Poran works directly with local partner organizations, there is no registration/ travel agency in between you and the project. Chck that almost all the other organizations are travel agencies that claim to be the biggest, the better, the most affordable, etc, etc, etc...But, bolunteering is not about this, volunteering comes from the heart. And only locals who are concerned about the locals, can speak from the heart.
I hope this can help you.
Best wishes,
Felipe

I'm also looking for some

I'm also looking for some feedback about different programs in Brazil. Is it safe? Who did you volunteer with?
