The Experience

We are in a colored house in a simple quarterhood where just travelers stay and teach to the children of the neighborhood. At the school 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 sense! Volunteers have to organize their lessons totally by themselves.

My days at the school were met with children smiles and a bit of curiosity, as must be said for me as well! I had a wonderful time at the school de Itacoatiara, it was however shorter than I would have hoped for. Even though many of the children would come and go as they pleased,one could clearly see that the school was an important and comforting place in their daily lives, with that the meaningful presence of volunteers and how it positively affects them. We had a lot of fun and lots of learning activities during my stay, I will work on my Portuguese and luckily I will be back soon!

An amazing experience, kids that steal your heart and a project that is very necessary and rewarding to contribute to. The neighbouring families are nice and helpful and the communication with Alex goes really smoothly. The stay in the school is nice, everything is there, good to bring a hammock though in case the one bed is occupied! I hope to return one day! I reccomend this project a lot, but be sure to have a solid base of Portuguese!

Once-In-a-lifetime experience! It is a project where you must be autonomous and manage your schedule. But autonomous does not mean being alone, everybody is so welcoming here! Alex, Dona Maria, Sandriely and Jussara were always there to make sure I was ok, so I only needed to worry about preparing activities with the kids. Oh the kids! They are pure souls! Once you open the door of the school they start dropping by with such a good energy! I am beyond grateful for this experience! :)

Helena came to the Escolinha Itacoatiara in February 2023, and from the very first moment she was working with the children totally on her own responsibility. The communication with her via internet was always friendly and productive. When she had to leave, all the children, Donna Maria and the girls were more than sad! Helena, thank you for your stay, you will be always more than welcome back!



I loved the energy of the place from the very beginning, the neighbors were so respectful and exited to show the beauty of Itacoatiara,I went with the mentality of teaching some things to the kids and I did but I truly think that they though me more. The expirience was absolutely great and I genuinely created a bone with the place

This was definitely an amazing experience despite the fact becoming sick the moment I arrived. The kids are very energetic and love to play. The team behind this work exchange are very humble and very welcoming.
