Cost:
Volunteer needs to contribute with a minimum of 100 Euros (or equivalent) per month to cover accommodation and food. Those coming from Latin America should contribute with BRL350 (Brasil reais) per month. We do not have accommodations rooms within the institution therefore there are some Brazilian families whom offer in their houses a place for foreign volunteers. These Brazilian families normally are co-workers from our organisation and they usually live in the community or nearby. We provide food (meals during working hours) and general support on your work. If volunteers find and pay for their own accommodation, only an administrative fee will be charged. Interns are asked to pay BRL40 per day to a Brazilian family to cover food, housing, and administrative costs.
