By teaching the Spanish language, this project supports the development of children and adolescents victims of social exclusion and marginalization in different favelas of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
In each favela is developed an educational program to teach Spanish with which, through formal and informal activities (such as games, crafts or field trips) , cross curricular issues such as values education, gender, basic hygiene, citizenship education or self-esteem, are also learnt.
The initiative is carried out through volunteering: In Madrid, a group of volunteers produce the syllabus; and from the field, in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), volunteers develop it in stays of three months, covering a full school term.
