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 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 sense! Volunteers have to organize their lessons totally by themselves.

I have only spent a few days there because of my schedule and the host was pretty friendly about it and helped me a lot with information about the place.
It is a unique experience since it is a place you really feel you help your neighbor. The neighborhood is poor, people are very simple and it is definitely the place people have to go with a spirit of cooperation.
I found this idea of keeping a social school in a place like that awesome and that is what we really need everywhere to help people.
You should have in mind it is a needy place and you are really going to be helpful to them.

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!

It is a completely life-changing experience. The circumstances can be really hard at the beginning, but the learnings and memories you are going to get from your stay at the Escolinha are definitely worthy. The kids are miraculous, always expecting your love and attention. Thank you very much, Alex, for your incredible work and for offering us, the volunteers, this indescribable experience!

The school is great when it comes to passing things that are useful for a successful future for children.

Does the World respect those children?
The truth is that we must at all times be aware that we are in an oppressed region and with people who are very exploited by a cruel system. So requiring a learning from them will never be too much.
We know that children who study in the best private schools in Brazil learn three languages, have theater, swimming, among other things. So our maximum effort is the least we can offer.
I think the Itacoatiara students deserve a chance!

I loved the experience, it was surely very different from all of my other trips. The place and the neighbourhood are extremely simple, but I got used to it very fast. The kids are really lovely, although it can be a little messy when there are lots of them. I was a little insecure about how to deal with them, but at the end they are just happy for being there with someone who cares about them. Congratulations to Alex for this beautiful initiative!
