Escolinha Itacoatiara

We hope you can come to the Amazon and stay with us! Accommodation is free, but you pay your food and transport, and also some teaching material as paper if you want to use. You can teach the children from the neighborhood everything you know or like to teach like the very basics of English or Spanish, maths, painting, singing, dancing.... its up to you ;-) Volunteers at the Escolinha have to organize their stay and lessons totally by themselves if there is no other volunteer at the same time! This is a non-profit, non-political and a non-religious project! Our calendar, we have two double-beds in the dormitory but a lot of space to put hammocks:: https://calendar.google.com/calendar/embed?src=1rru4tg5b5h00bjli7brsd3d6k%40group.calendar.google.com&ctz=Europe/Berlin For more info, check our CS profile or or homepage: http://alexos2001.wix.com/rua-doze-de-octobro Anthony from Malta made a nice but too long 35 min video about his stay at the Escolinha: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PB50SMrcYpY&feature=youtu.be

Alex is living in Europe and organizing everything via internet, Donna Maria and her sons Emerson and Denis are living next door to the Escolinha and will help you with everything, but they do not speak any English, but they have already helped to host more than 60 groups in the last 3 years. For young female volunteers that come alone in a time where no other volunteers are at the Escolinha the neighborhood and all the situation can be frightened and scary, at the weekend there can be very drunken people in the neighborhood. Also Donna Marias husband Poro is a lovely person, but if he is drunken he can be very annoying.

Melhor hostel de Icaraizinho! 😍 Muito organizando, limpinho e agradável. Me senti muito a vontade. Fiz um passeio de bicicleta até a praia de Moitas (que fica a 5 km de icaraizinho) e foi incrível! Vista sensacional! É praticamente ao lado da praia e perto do centro onde ficam todos os restaurantes. Sem falar que Aline é maravilhosa!! Muito atenciosa, flexibilizou os meus horários perfeitamente e pude curtir a praia da melhor forma possível. Não vejo a hora de voltar! Amei! 🥰😍

Fiquei 15 dias no Amazonas e foi uma das melhores experiências da minha vida. O Poró, a dona Maria e até o Alex, mesmo de longe, dão atenção 100% do tempo, são solícitos e me
fizeram sentir pertencente a família.
As crianças são incríveis, extremamente carentes e estão dispostas a aprender e ensinar. Desejo essa experiência a todos.

Great experience, the kids are lovely, Poro's family is always ready to assist you with anything and Alex also gives you support via WhatsApp whenever you need. The community and the escolinha are very simple, but that's not a problem at all, in fact, that's how they live, and you're gonna get the true experience of their daily lives. I definitely recommend it!
