Volunteer Work

  • Our Volunteer program involves placing students in Orphanages & children’s safe houses for abused children.

    This program is can be emotional for students as the children are always happy to see a “gringo” face. When the time comes to leave we know from personal experience that this can be a very emotional experience.

    Students will be at the service of the House Director. Things they might be expected to assist in would include maintenance, cleaning & cooking. The rest of the time would be spent playing with the kids.

    The program lasts 4 weeks normally but we can be flexible with this as the Orphanages are very welcoming when foreign students visit.
    A minimum level of basic Portuguese is essential.
