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.

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!
