I had the oportunity to participate in a volunteer program with Iko Poran in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil.
I was an English teacher for kids in a community. I had an excelent oportunity to learn about languages, people and new cultures as well as the one to help people and build a better future. The programs that the organization has are very fun and you really feel that you are helping.
The support that the members give you is great and I would like to congratulate Felipe, who really makes you feel like at home and trully fights with all his hearth to change the present and future of communities all around the world.
This was an amazing experience and I higly recommend it for everyone who feels that he wants to help and learn. – Alejandro

Volunteer in Uganda in our health programs. Life in Ugandan community is no different to other regions of Africa and poverty still has a large impact on the quality of life the Ugandan people are able to enjoy.

Medical Volunteers needed in Tanzania

Medical Volunteers in Tanzania

Medical Volunteers in Tanzania

Volunteer in Tanzania in our medical project and help to treat people and create health awareness.

In 2002 the Servants of the Poor, Daughters of Charity opened the dispensary. Primarily their mission was to attend to basic healthcare needs and education of their local communities. Within this culture, cattle is their way of life and the main source of income, when necessary. Education and healthcare was perceived as less valuable, as people resorted to traditional healing methods.

When the facility began in January 2002, people did not see their assistance as necessary, as they had already become accustomed to their own methods of care. Only when these showed negative results did people begin to use the dispensaries facilities.

Morrinho Project: Martina 3 weeks volunteering in Rio

I spent 3 weeks in Rio volunteering for project Morrinho with Iko Poran last january. It was an amazing experience. The project I worked in was very interesting, and I got to know really nice locals and the way they lived in the favela (that has an amazing view of Rio by the way!). All the volunteers stayed at Felipe’s beautiful house, which was so comfortable and we had a beautiful terrace to get together, have dinner or a few drinks in. Rio de Janeiro is such a vibrant, beautiful and fun city to visit and it’s even better to get to know it with amazing people like the friends I made in the volunteer house.

3 weeks went by too fast…

The 3 weeks went by too fast, I wish I could have stayed more time. If you have the time and can afford it, I recommend staying at least 5-6 weeks. I made really good friends there that I really miss and I hope I can go back soon to visit them! I’m definitely considering volunteering for Iko Poran again whenever I have the chance. – Martina, 20 years old, from Montevideu

Working with the Red Cross in Rio – Valuable experience

Volunteering with Iko Poran is definitely one of the most amazing experience I ever had. The organization gives you the freedom to help in your own ways.
Working with kids was certainly a challenge but the support of other volunteers and people in charge of the projects make everything so much easier.

Volunteering in a health project

I also volunteered in a health project where people from the communities work together to inform people about important health issues.
My overall experience was amazing, I enjoy every second of it and I learned so much about the culture. Definitely a experience that will change your life.
