BRAZIL ... Welcome to a Tropical Paradise!


Brazil seems to embody everything that is best in South America; the world’s largest rainforest, thousands of miles of glorious beaches; an array of natural and cultural wonders and world heritage sites. Cities include heart stopping Rio de Janeiro; sprawling, metropolitan Sao Paulo; and further north, the entrancing canals and bustling piers of Recife, ‘the Venice of Brazil’.

You can volunteer on programmes on the beautiful Island of Florianopolis (it's where Brazilians go on their holidays!).

Please see below our list of volunteering programmes, then click on the link to read all about the project.
