Environmental Program: Great Experience in Rio

Environmental Program in Rio de Janeiro

I was in Rio de Janeiro for 4 weeks helping out in the Tijuca rainforest and at the community garden in a favela. I met so many different people from all over the world and as a result, I not only learned about Brazil but many other cultures. It’s a great way to get to know a city and have more of a local feel and the program itself is very reasonably priced. I would definitely consider coming back to Iko Poran for volunteering again.

Environmental Program: Community Garden in a Rio Favela

If you enjoy the outdoors consider volunteer in Brazil in our environment projects. From conservation projects to urban renewal, Iko Poran has partnerships with a number of NGOs and projects helping to protect Rio’s stunning landscape or growing vegetables and salads in community gardens to alleviate hunger or donate to local crèches.
