​​How you can help!

There are many ways to get involved in the Project including making a donation, volunteering in Tabajaras, raising awareness or even something as simple as following us on social media! Any kind of support is always greatly appreciated by both the kids and staff alike!  


Making a donation. 

We are always unbelievably grateful for any donation we receive, no matter how small or large. Your donation goes a long way to help sustaining the Project, ensuring the classrooms always have supplies, the children always have pens and paper and we can continue to grow and help more children and grow our offering to the community . 

There are several ways to donate to the Project. You can provide financial help through PayPal, Facebook, or Propeller, with Propeller giving you the opportunity to earn prizes as you donate! We also are always delighted to receive supplies of any kind, but in particular from our Amazon Wish List! Also if you shop Amazon please select us as your Amazon Smiles Charity.

We staff volunteers from all over the world of all ages and backgrounds for stays ranging from 3 weeks to 6 months!  You do not need to be a teacher, but you do need to be serious about making a difference in the lives of children. Our teaching system allows volunteers to really be effective in the school. Volunteering in Rio with us is very rewarding and very challenging. It is real challenging work, making a real difference, if you are looking for a vacation with do good feel we are probably not right for you.

We are looking for serious, dedicated, energetic, compassionate people to join our team.

Our volunteers are responsible for all of the school’s lesson planning and teaching, working with our curriculum to achieve outstanding results in the classroom year on year. We are always in need of outstanding volunteers who are willing to join our team and take on a challenge!
