We hope you can come to the Amazon and stay at the Escolinha Itacoatiara!
Accommodation is free, but you pay your food and transport, and also some teaching material as paper if you want to use. You can teach the children from the neighborhood everything you know or like to teach, like painting, the very basics of English or Spanish, maths, singing, dancing.... its up to you ;-)
Volunteers at the Escolinha have to organize their stay and lessons totally by themselves if there is no other volunteer at the same time!
This is a non-profit, non-political and a non-religious project!
Our calendar, we have two double-beds in the dormitory but a lot of space to put hammocks::

You dont need any experience in teaching to apply at the Escolinha Itacoatiara.
Alex is living in Europe and organizing everything via internet, Donna Maria and her sons Emerson and Denis are living next door to the Escolinha and will help you with everything, but they do not speak any English, but they have already helped to host more than 80 groups in the last 4 years.
The Escolinha Itacoatiara is located in a very simple quarter hood at the outskirts of a small city in the Amazon. Nobody is staying constantly at the Escolinha.
For young female volunteers that come alone in a time where no other volunteers are at the Escolinha the neighborhood and all the situation can be frightened and scary, at the weekend there can be very drunken people in the neighborhood. Also Donna Marias husband Poro is a lovely person, but if he is drunken he can be annoying.
