Casa do Mar is a very special place in Rio. You are on the edge of pacific rain forest over-viewing the cliffs and sea. I felt comfortable there - Larry is a very open minded chap and I had many interesting talks with him. I also met many interesting people in his house and in the nearby NGO - where English lessons took place. Meeting new people there helped me to improve my Portuguese and make new friends. I also enjoyed teaching kids in favela - which was a bit challenging - but very rewarding especially when you see kids having fun. Long story short - I enjoyed it and recommend it!!!

A experiência na Casa do Mar foi perfeita. Sinto que pude trocar saberes e partilhar aprendizados com todos que estiveram comigo. Larry e Meg sempre foram muito atenciosos e agradáveis de se estar perto. Samuel, Henrique e Isa foram voluntários nesse meio tempo comigo e, honestamente, era como estar em casa quando estávamos juntos. A imersão com as crianças e adolescentes da comunidade me sensibilizou tão profundamente que ainda penso em maneiras de fazer com que o trabalho desenvolvido reverbere para além do Vidigal. Meu coração bate mais forte de lembrar desse RJ. Sou muito, muito grata! <3

a casa do mar realmente tem uma vista maravilhosa e de tirar o folego, as instalações da casa sao otimas, ainda falta muito para ser um lugar 100% perfeito pra abrigar diversos voluntarios mas nada fora do comum, as tarefas sao leves com excessão de uma que é limpar todo o beco e rua que da acesso a casa do mar, função essa que deveria ser feita pela prefeitura e nao pelos voluntarios que nao tem nada a ver com a falta de educação dos moradores, larry e meg sao super de boas mas pecam em socializar e receber feedback dos voluntarios.

aunque eu tive q ue ir embora antes da data que A gente fechou por assuntos pessoas, Megui é Larri eles foram muito compreensivos comigo, São muito gente boa, sempre com respeito, muito amáveis. Teve a incrível experiência de poder participar das aulas pra crianças, fiquei muito apagada a eles em muito pouco tempo. De coração foi um momento na minha vida que não Vou a esquecer. Aprendi muito. É gente, o espaço e LINDO. Tem uma vista incrível, e muito confortável. Eu recomendo muito esta experiência, não van a sé arrepender . ❣
