BRAZIL – ESPAÑOL PARA TOD@S – Development through teaching Spanish to children in favelas
23 November, 2012 Imaginario Social

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.

      Hola Daniel,
      Nuestro proyecto de voluntariado internacional es Español Para Tod@s y consiste en clases de español en favelas de Rio de Janeiro. Pero puedes estar atento a las noticias de la web pues, durante el mes de mayo, lanzaremos las ofertas de voluntariado para India. ¡Gracias por tu interés!

    Hola… soy mexicano con un grado universitario en literatura residiendo en N.Y. Mi pregunta es sobre el vuelo, ?es este cubierto por la asociacion, asi como el hospedaje? Supongo que la labor voluntaria carece de salario.

    Gracias y felicidades.
