The Experience

The Escolinha Itacoatiara is a colored house in a simple quaterhood where just travelers stay and teach to the children of the neighborhood. At the Escolinha you can teach the children the very basics of English or other matter you know like math, painting, Spanish, music, games, sports or ... whatever you think makes sence! Volunteers have to organize their lessons totally by themselves.

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!

Oi pessoal, sou da equipe do @viajeifoimal!
Estive em Julho em Itacoatiara, mais especificamente, na Escolinha. Passei 10 dias lá, e posso dizer, que valeram muito a pena!
A experiência soma muito para quem trabalha com o social, ou pretende trabalhar. A comunidade é receptiva, a cidade tem ótimos preços para alimentação, transporte, e até lazer.
Muita gratidão pelos dias vividos ali. Meu registro de experiência se encontra no ig @viajeifoimal!

Fiquei uma semana na escolinha e foi uma experiência sensacional! As crianças são muito amorosas e interessadas em aprender, o que deixa o clima da escolinha super leve e agradável. Foi extramente engradecedor poder vivenciar um cotidiano diferente do meu e conviver com outros voluntários muito especiais. Vim embora com vontade de poder ficar muito mais tempo por lá. O Alex foi atencioso conosco e eu super recomendo a experiência. Sem dúvida alguma me acrescentou muito como pessoa e me fez muito feliz nos dias que estive por lá. Vale a pena!!! =)
