Teach your favorite sport and motivate children to paint!

The Exchange

Hi! I'm a Swedish girl who ended up in Rio de Janeiro/Brazil since some years ago and I really enjoin my life each day here. 3-4 times a week I go to one of the slum areas (favelas) and help with teaching English, dance, yoga and also swimming, sometimes we take the kids where I dive and they come with me. I want you to be a part of that project, it is my private project so is important to respect that no organization is involved in this.
